“One of the priorities is to reduce our workforce,” Holveck added. “We have eight or nine players who will leave.”
How much will Rennes sell Camavinga for?
Setting a selling price in this unique market would be a little presumptuous- Nicolas Holveck, Rennes president
While it may well be that Camavinga departs for either Man Utd or PSG, Holveck is unwilling to put a price tag on what they hope to recoup for the player.
“Setting a selling price in this unique market would be a little presumptuous,” he said. “What is certain is that he has a certain value.”
Rennes have already been active in the transfer window, notably signing 19-year-old winger Kamaldeen Sulemana from Nordsjaelland. He was a player that Man Utd were closely following but the Ghana international ultimately made a €15 million switch to the Ligue 1 side.
Meanwhile, 21-year-old centre-back Loic Bade, who was an eye-catching presence in the heart of the defence with Lens last season, has joined the club for a fee in the region of €17m.
Two further additions in the form of left-back Birger Meling from Nimes and a No.6 are expected before the end of the transfer window.
There is little doubt, though, that all eyes are on Camavinga – and especially those of Man Utd and PSG.
