The 18-year-old Frenchman is among the most ranked youngsters in world football, with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain all keeping an eye on him as he enters the final year of his contract.

United are believed to have planned a meeting with Camavinga’s representatives in the coming days to discuss a move, and Maurice has now admitted that Rennes will hold its own meeting with the teenager to find out what the future will hold for him.

“We will have discussions with him tomorrow to find out his wish and his determination,” Maurice told TV Rennes (via Canal Supporters).

“I am calm because we have a situation where there is a player who is still at Stade Rennes. It seems that important clubs are looking at the player. Now we are waiting to see. I think Eduardo does not want to leave Rennes for free. So either we find an agreement this summer with a club, or we find a solution to extend.

Maurice was then asked directly about the interest from Real, PSG and United, but refused to confirm whether it was the “important clubs” that are pursuing Camavinga.

The director also dismissed reports from France that Rennes would endure a fee of 100 million euros (86 million pounds), suggesting that the young midfielder may be available for a small sum.

“There are really clubs that want Eduardo, but he also has a price and there must also be an agreement at that level,” Maurice added. “The amount of a transfer is linked to the player’s performance and finances for the clubs that want the player.

“I have never talked about 100 million euros but this is a player who became international in September and who may have had a slightly more sensitive season. But I still have confidence in Eduardo’s quality.”

PSG are believed to lead the race for Camavinga’s signature, with the youngster preferring to move to the Parc des Princes because he wants to stay in France right now in his career, but he is keeping his options open and will meet United in the coming days to discuss their proposals. .
