Manchester United are in no hurry when it comes to a deal for Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga, reports say. The France international has just a year left on his current contract. And the Red Devils are hoping to secure his signature as they look to win the Premier League title next time out.
Manchester United have signed two players already.
A deal for Jadon Sancho is now done, with the Red Devils preparing an announcement for the 21-year-old.
And they’ve also welcomed Tom Heaton back to Old Trafford, 11 years after the goalkeeper left for Cardiff.
United are currently working to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid, too, with confidence building a deal for the 2018 World Cup winner can be struck this summer.
But when it comes to Camavinga, The Athletic say the Red Devils are willing to play a waiting game.
It’s claimed they’re in no hurry to negotiate the signing of the 18-year-old, who is one of the most talented players of his generation.

He’s been playing regular football for two years, now, and came close to making Didier Deschamps’ squad for the European Championships.
United are said to have scouted him extensively during that time.
Yet while they’re interested, there’s also a feeling the midfielder would prefer to move to Spain instead.
Paris Saint-Germain had previously been considered potential suitors but, having landed Georginio Wijnaldum from Liverpool already, their priorities appear to have changed.
Real Madrid have also been linked but with the club strapped for cash, and focusing on the signing of Kylian Mbappe, a move to the Bernabeu is in limbo.
And with Barcelona’s finances also hit hard by the coronavirus crisis, a move to the Nou Camp currently appears to be unlikely.

United could lose two midfielders this summer, too.
Though they want to keep hold of Paul Pogba, they may cash in on the France international in order to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer.
PSG have emerged as suitors, with the Ligue 1 giants holding talks with the midfielder’s agent Mino Raiola about a potential move to the Parc des Princes.
And Juventus remain keen on the 28-year-old, despite letting him move to Old Trafford back in 2016.
In other United transfer news, Solskjaer has revealed several players could leave the club on loan.
“We’ve got six weeks together before the league starts and a couple of training camps here in the UK,” he said.
“It’s the most sensible thing, we felt, being in and around here. You don’t get the, how do you say, aggravation of: ‘Are we green, red or amber [in terms of travelling abroad]?’ It’s just the way the world works at the moment.
“The young kids will definitely be part of the Derby game and then we’ve got another couple of games coming up and they can be part of it.”
And he then added: “Gradually, more and more players from the Euros will join in.
“They’ll [the youngsters] get a taste of some football. Then roundabouts early August, some will go on loan.
“We’ve already lined up a few and some of them are still in discussions between us and the players about where is the best place to go.”
Solskjaer also admitted he was happy to have the players back as they start training ahead of the new season.
“Pre-season is always a fresh start, a new start with new opportunities to look forward to the season,” he said.
“Some of the players have just started their holiday, so we know it’s a depleted squad, but it gives the young kids a taste of what it is like to have a proper pre-season with top professionals like Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata in the first team, Lee Grant, Tom Heaton is back.
“They’ve done it so many times. Mason [Greenwood], Aaron [Wan-Bissaka], Axel [Tuanzebe] are first-team players who will bring these boys along and it’s a good opportunity for them.”
