Real Madrid is likely to deal a very strong blow to MU’s ambition to own Eduardo Camavinga on the last day of the summer transfer window.
Camavinga has long been considered one of MU’s top transfer targets in an effort to strengthen the defensive midfield position. This weakness of MU was clearly shown in the match against Wolves in the 4th round of the Premier League. Neither Fred nor Paul Pogba did a good job of defending and letting Adama Traore roam freely.
With what has shown in Ligue 1 in Rennes’ shirt, 18-year-old midfielder Camavinga becomes an ideal target for MU. Especially as he entered the final year of his contract.
Camavinga is also pursued by Barca and PSG, but at this time, it is likely that he will join Real Madrid.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, Camavinga has reached an agreement on personal terms and a five-year contract (until 2026) with the La Liga giants.

If Camavinga goes to Real Madrid, MU will not only miss a target that could bring quality to their midfield for years to come. But the Red Devils will also have an additional worry that Camavinga will be able to help Real convince Pogba to leave Old Trafford to move to the Bernabeu.
Camavinga once admitted he was inspired to play football by Paul Pogba. And when the 18-year-old midfielder scored his first goal for France on his debut against Ukraine, Pogba also gave his juniors compliments:

“It was a pleasure to see him in a France shirt. To score on his first start is a miracle.”
“I’m really happy for him. I wish Camavinga all the best and more. He has all the qualities, the future is in his hands. Camavinga has always played very elegantly, at times. when he looks like he’s dancing he’s also very confident with his skills really like Camavinga,” Pogba said.
Pogba has also entered the final year of his contract with MU and he will become a free agent next summer. With Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho, MU still has a chance to convince Pogba to renew his contract if they can win trophies.
