Eduardo Camavinga has sent warning to Man Utd over summer transfer as preferred role revealed

Eduardo Camavinga has sent a warning to Manchester United over his preferred position.

Earlier this week Bild journalist Christian Falk claimed that should Sheikh Jassim be successful in his attempt to take over Manchester United, he would look to sign Kylian Mbappe alongside Kingsley Coman and Eduardo Camavinga.

The Qatari has bid £5billion to buy 100 per cent of United but faces competition from British petrochemicals billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

A move for Mbappe, who has netted 35 goals for Paris Saint-Germain this season, would cost an enormous transfer fee, even though the France international will be entering the final year of his contract in the summer.

Camavinga too will command an large transfer fee, given he is still only 20 years old and one of the most talented midfielders in world football.

However, as the youngster has operated at left-back for much of the season, he could jump at the chance to re-establish himself in the middle at United.

Camavinga on playing left-back

The Real Madrid star was asked by Canal+ whether he was enjoying playing at left back more, having starred there for much of the campaign.

Camavinga responded: “No, not yet (laughs).

“The most important thing is to help the team, so today I did it again. But no, it still isn’t my position.”

Given the needs of Erik ten Hag’s side, it is unlikely Camavinga will play in defence should he move to Old Trafford.

United have been looking to add to their midfield ranks ever since Ten Hag took the reins at United, having also been linked with Declan Rice and Frenkie De Jong at various points over the past year.

However, the Dutchman also has a knack for starting players in unfavoured positions. Left-back Luke Shaw has played as a centre-back for United this term on several occasions, for example.
