Although Paul Pogba appears to be in the form of his life at the moment, it is unlikely that the French maestro will remain at Manchester United beyond this season. The talks spurred as soon as the superstar midfielder went on to declare, in rather mischievous fashion, that it is his dream to play for Red Madrid one day.

And then came the infamous bombshell from his agent Mino Raiola on the eve of a do-or-die Champions League group stage game against RB Leipzig, claiming that it would be Pogba’s last season at Old Trafford.

Ever since making his grand £89 million move from Juventus, Pogba has endured a bumpy ride as a Manchester United player. Despite winning one League Cup and one Europa League title since returning to the club, the Frenchman has never quite fulfilled his potential.

Although Raiola’s comment disjointed United’s fanbase, Pogba has been resurrected since and is playing some of the best football of his career at the moment. Nevertheless, the anxiety concerning his future at the club still persists. And there is a strong indication that he might eventually end up bidding farewell to the club for the second time in his professional career.

Eduardo Camavinga to Manchester United transfer blow

That being said, the name of Eduardo Camavinga has been linked with a summer move to Manchester United. The anticipation of him being a perfect replacement for Paul Pogba has already started creating a lot of buzz surrounding his potential arrival. But now, it looks like the move might not happen.

Speaking to the media, the France international said that he would like to sign a contract extension with his current club, Rennes.

As reported by The Mirror, he said:

"“Could I sign an extension? Yes. Do I want to? Yes. What is holding it up? I do not know, there are negotiations.”"

A product of Rennes’ renowned academy, Camavinga has played 23 games for the Ligue 1 side across all competitions this campaign, attracting interest from a plethora of possible suitors.

Not in the race for the title this season, Rennes, presently sit at 5th on the table and are fighting for Champions League football, as they did last time.

Even though it is very early to pass comment on the future of Camavinga at the French club, it might be the qualification for the Champions League football that would decide his destiny at the end of the day.
