United are not wasting any time in this summer's transfer window. They have already reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund to sign long-term target Jadon Sancho for a reported £72.9 million.
Manchester United are progressing in direct contacts to sign Eduardo Camavinga. :red_circle: #MUFC
Rennes would be open to negotiate on potential €30m fee - as they'd lose Camavinga for free next summer. :flag_fr:
He's one of Man Utd long term targets - PSG have always been interested too.

Los Blancos' asking price for the player, who has one year left on his deal at the Bernabeu, is reportedly in the region of €60 million.
The 28-year-old would certainly bring experience to the fold at Old Trafford after a trophy-laden 10 year spell in Madrid - and clearly former United centre-back Rio Ferdinand is a big admirer of Varane.
In an Instagram Q&A with his followers, Ferdinand responded to a fan who said: "Can you drop Varane a text since you were his idol?"
He replied suggesting he had already sent him a message, saying: "Already have done. Agent Ferdy."
United are all set to make a £50 million bid for Varane, according to Marca, who claim the club will also offer £25 million to Rennes for highly-rated midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, who is 'closer than ever' to joining the ranks at Old Trafford.
They also suggest that both Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid 'no longer see Camavinga as a priority'.
In terms of the Varane deal, it appears the French defender is seeking a new challenge as United try and strike out a deal.
:microphone2: -@FabrizioRomano on Varane:
"Varane wants to try something different. He's not like forcing the situation, it's just his desire after winning everything with Real Madrid. We'll see if he goes to England where #MUFC are keen on Varane"#Transfers #UtdPlug :beginner: pic.twitter.com/ja2CUS2ciS

Do you think Varane would be a good fit at Old Trafford? Do they need him alongside Harry Maguire next season if they want to challenge for the title?
Let us know in the comments.
