Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is Europe’s hottest midfield prospect. The midfielder has been the talk of the town since his debut for Rennes last season.
Italian Champions Juventus are also looking to sneak in and cart him away under the eyes of these big clubs.
Who is Eduardo Camavinga?
Eduardo Camavinga is one of the best holding midfielders in the past year. His performances game in and game out for Rennes are astonishing, considering the fact that he is just 17 and this was his first season in professional football.
His stats at Rennes speak for themselves.
The midfielder averages a pass rate of 90.3% and wins at least 3-4 headers every game. He successfully completes 70% of his tackles. Camavinga completed at least 1 key pass per game. He’s a progressive passer of the ball.
Camavinga can be best described as an embodiment of the modern football-control idea. He plays as a true metronome, building the actions for his team and organizing the central areas in the way he sees them.
His movements allow him to play the pressing game, participate in quick counter attacks. He has exceptional passing and finishing skills for a defensive midfielder.
Camavinga is the type of player who would fit perfectly at Manchester United.
Manchester United are leaking goals at an alarming rate, perfectly shown by their 6-1 mauling at the hands of Tottenham Hotspurs. The Red Devils have conceded 12 goals in 4 league games.
The defense is to blame for this debacle, but so is the lack of a good holding midfielder. United’s midfielder is predominantly an extension of their attack. The influence of star players Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba is based on their attacking contributions.
United lack a midfielder like Camavinga who can stay back and help out the defense in times of need. The current occupants of this position are not enough. Nemanja Matic is aging and is expected to play lesser as months pass. Scott McTominay is considered too inconsistent. Fred looks decent but his defensive abilities are questioning.
Camavinga’s profile and playing style fits perfectly at Man United. He would walk right into OGS’s youth oriented policies.
United considerCamavinga a replacement for Paul Pogba. Although United have extended Paul Pogba’s contract for one more year, they should move for Camavinga if Pogba does not wish to remain at Old Trafford more than that.
United would experience some seriously challenges from the rest of the competitors for Camavinga’s signature.
Eduardo Camavinga is valued at €50 million by Transfermarkt – but he could cost more.
