Real Madrid have completed the French starlet’s medical TONIGHT.
The Rennes midfielder will become a Los Blancos player before the deadline.
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Camavinga, 18, picked Real over Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
CAMA HAVE A GO
Real Madrid have reportedly struck a £25million deal to sign Rennes starlet Eduardo Camavinga.
The teenage midfield sensation had also been linked with Man United and PSG.
But Canal Plus claims Camavinga will instead head to the Bernabeu on deadline day.
It’s the international break now.
But let’s take a look at Man Utd’s next five games when they return to action…
Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly slammed Jose Mourinho when Man Utd beat Juventus in the Champions League three years ago.
A source told ESPN: “We had just beaten Juve with two late goals and Jose Mourinho, the manager at the time, went onto the pitch and started to goad the Juventus fans by cupping his ear to the noise.
“A lot of the players were p****d off with [Mourinho] because it seemed like he was making the win about him rather than the team and Cristiano was furious with him, too.
“He walked past and said, ‘[Mourinho] doesn’t have the class to manage Manchester United’.
“We’ve always known that Ronaldo loved his time at Old Trafford, but I think what people outside the club don’t appreciate is how much he still cares, and always has, about what happens here.”
Barcelona reportedly turned down the chance to sign Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
Cat Radio claims the Spanish giants were offered Ronnie, who played for fierce rivals Real Madrid.
But they passed up the opportunity before Man Utd eventually clinched a stunning return.
RIGHT SAID FRED
Rio Ferdinand has urged Man Utd to sign a new midfielder to replace Fred.
He told Vibe with Five: “In that role, for me, you need someone who can orchestrate. Not only with the ball, I’m talking without the ball. He can position himself to stop trouble before it comes.
“You haven’t got to fly everywhere 100mph, but they’re in a position to stop the ball getting into these danger areas, they’re an obstacle.
“I think sometimes positionally, that’s where someone like Fred lets himself down.
“But I think they need someone in there who can see the game better, who’s more controlled, who’s more calculated in their positioning and decision-making from a defensive perspective.”
Everton are reportedly looking to hijack Dan James’ Leeds transfer.
Football Insider claims the Toffees have made a late approach for the Man Utd winger.
However, Fabrizio Romano insists Leeds remain likely to complete a £30million deal for James shortly.
Rio Ferdinand has apologised to Phil Jones after telling him to leave Man United.
Ferdinand said: “From speaking to people behind the scenes last week, he’s had real issues with injuries.
“To the extent that Bruno Fernandes only trained with him for the first time last week – so that tells you how long he’s been injured.
“So I didn’t know that, that’s not been communicated to the public.
“So from that stand point, for someone who’s been injured, knowing what that does to you from a mental point of view, I hold my hands up and I apologise.”
HAA LA LAND
Borussia Dortmund have laughed off reports linking Man Utd with a shock late move for Erling Haaland.
Chief Michael Zorc said: “We are a football club, not a bank! Our position is very clear and did not change.
“I assume that we will now be confronted with wild rumours for another two days.
“Our position is clear, I don’t need to play the parrot all the time.”
Cristiano Ronaldo has some competition at Man United… from Mason Greenwood.
That’s because the youngster is the club’s best finisher, according to Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman said: “Mason I think he’s more left footed, he dribbles more with his left but to shoot he shoots with both.
“His finishing is unreal, he’s the best finisher I’ve seen, trained with.
“He’s the youngest but he’s just unbelievable and I hope he score more goals and improve and win titles.
“He’s very young and very talented and I want to push him even better.”
Leeds will reportedly pay £30million to sign Dan James from Man United.
The Telegraph claims a deal is almost complete to take the winger to Elland Road.
And it would see United earn double the £15m they paid Swansea for James in 2019.
Wayne Rooney reckons the pressure will be on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to deliver a major piece of silverware following Cristiano Ronaldo’s Man Utd return.
The Derby boss said: “Ole will certainly know that he’s in a position now where he needs to start winning these big titles with the players that he’s brought in.”
Paul Pogba can’t wait to finally link up with Cristiano Ronaldo.
He beamed: “Everybody knows [what he brings]. He’s already a legend at this club and he is coming back.
“Obviously, it’s good for us, he’s going to bring his experience and quality. When he comes, the level goes up.
“We’re really pleased he’s coming, and the most important thing today was the win so that when he comes we keep this winning mentality and keep going”
Reiss Nelson is set to complete a loan move to Feyenoord.
The Dutch side turned to Arsenal’s misfit winger after seeing first target Amad Diallo suffer a long-term injury at Man United.
Fabrizio Romano claims Nelson is currently on his way to the Netherlands to complete his switch.
RON NEARLY DONE
Cristiano Ronaldo is on the brink of making his Man Utd return official.
The superstar completed a medical in Portugal this morning.
And his highly-anticipated signing could be confirmed by the club later today.
Man United will not be following up their interest in Kieran Trippier on deadline day.
The Mirror claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not prepared to meet Atletico Madrid’s £34million asking price.
The Spaniards have also failed to land a replacement, seeing a move for Lille’s Mehmet Celik collapse.
And it means Diogo Dalot will get a chance to impress for United this term.
LIN IT TO WIN IT
Jesse Lingard is set to remain at Manchester United this summer.
Leeds’ move for Dan James means the former West Ham loanee will get a chance to challenge for minutes under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And David Moyes has already moved on by launching a £32million bid for CSKA Moscow’s Nikola Vlasic.
Man City and Chelsea were the world’s biggest spenders on overseas transfers over the past completed decade.
Man Utd, Arsenal and Tottenham also made it into the top ten.
But despite their outlays, none of the City or Chelsea purchases ranked in the top 10 most expensive transfers globally, while United’s captures of Paul Pogba and Argentine flop Angel Di Maria did.
DAN THE MAN
Daniel James is in advanced talks with Leeds over a permanent transfer.
Fabrizio Romano claims personal terms are also close after Man Utd agreed to do business with their fierce rivals.
James is surplus to requirements following the arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United is the transfer of the summer.
But he is NOT the solution to all of the team’s problems.
Sunday’s performance at Wolves showed there’s a lot of things that need to be sorted…
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hasn’t ruled out a potential exit for Daniel James, who has been linked with a move to Leeds.
Solskjaer said: “I’m not going to discuss individual players and names.
“There have been a couple of enquiries for some of our players and with the signing of Cristiano we may give less playing time to a few.
“Dan is a Man United player at the moment”
Manchester United star Diogo Dalot will definitely stay at Manchester United.
That is according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, who claims there is a “100%” chance Dalot is staying.
The same goes for Amad Diallo, who was linked with a loan transfer to Feyenoord.
However, Diallo’s move fell through due to an injury and thus the Eredivisie giants turned their attention on Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson
Arsenal ace Reiss Nelson is on his way to Feyenoord ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline.
That is according to Football London, who report that a deal has been reached between the Eredivisie giants and the Gunners.
Nelson, who has fallen down the pecking order in north London, is moving to the Dutch side on a season-long loan.
Feyenoord decided to move for the winger after missing out on Manchester United’s Amad Diallo
Manchester United have confirmed that Amad Diallo will be out for six weeks due to an injury.
That has scuppered a reported loan move to Feyenoord, who are now looking elsewhere.
Reports suggest the Eredivisie giants are targeting Arsenal ace Reiss Nelson.
The Dutch side wishes to sign Nelson on loan as well
Manchester United are open to selling Jesse Lingard before Tuesday’s transfer deadline day.
That is according to Manchester Evening News, who claim United are looking to trim their squad size after re-signing Cristiano Ronaldo.
Lingard has entered the last year of his contract but the Red Devils have not received a concrete offer for the £25million-rated winger.
And it is highly unlikely the Manchester giants would receive an offer close to their valuation before the transfer window slams shut.
West Ham have been trying to bring Lingard back but have switched their attention to CSKA Moscow star Nikola Vlasic
