Chelsea 'make contact' over Eduardo Camavinga transfer as they join Man Utd in race for Rennes wonderkid

CHELSEA have contacted Rennes over Manchester United target Eduardo Camavinga, reports say.

The £26million-rated France midfielder, 18, is thought said to prefer staying in his home country by joining PSG.

But Le Parisien suggest Chelsea have spoken directly to Rennes about him.

Blues' boss Thomas Tuchel hopes to strengthen his engine room after Scotland ace Billy Gilmour switched to promoted Norwich on loan for the season.

Arsenal and Real Madrid have also been linked with three-cap starlet Camavinga, who has just a year left on his contract.

But Chelsea's interest might be a bigger blow to United.

Rennes have already denied some claims a deal for Camavinga to join United has been completed.

And now Tuchel seems to believe his Champions League winners can also seriously rival PSG for one of the hottest young talents in Europe.

Chelsea are also said to be finalising a new deal for their 18-year-old striker Armando Broja after his impressive loan campaign with Vitesse.


But the Stamford Bridge futures of fellow frontmen Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham are in doubt.

France stalwart Giroud, 34, could be closing on a move to AC Milan.

And six-cap England man Abraham, 23, is reportedly interesting old loan club Aston Villa.
