Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga “wants to join” Paris Saint-Germain, according to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna.
Manchester United and Chelsea have also been heavily linked with the 18-year-old in recent weeks but despite agents “pushing” him towards England, Aouna reports that the player has his heart set on PSG:

Aouna goes on to explain that Rennes are still demanding €50m (£42m) for Camavinga but the fee could well be negotiated down with the teenager’s contract set to expire next summer.
There is a scenario where the France international opts to stay with Rennes before leaving on a free transfer in 2022, although that would still play into the hands of PSG.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not completely ruled out more signings, but he has made it clear that he would be happy if no more players were brought in before the transfer window closes. Whether that means they have given up on Camavinga, we shall have to wait and see.
