Back on May 28th, we covered a story from The Metro, in which it was claimed that Manchester United ‘hope’ to beat Real Madrid to the signing of Ligue 1 sensation, Eduardo Camavinga.

They again link United with a move for Camavinga, stating that the Red Devils have made ‘multiple proposals’ for the mega-talented 17-year-old. However, they face serious competition, from Real Madrid…

Apparently, Camavinga isn’t keen on a move to Old Trafford as he wants to wear the white of Real Madrid, being especially keen on playing for their current manager, Zinedine Zidane…
