Manchester United have been linked with a move for Eduardo Camavinga throughout the summer transfer window – and fans think a deal could be closer than ever after they spotted him 'waving goodbye' to his current club.
The 18-year-old midfielder is one of the hottest properties in European football having consistently impressed in Ligue 1 with Rennes over the last two seasons.
His performances have seen him attract interest from a host of the game's elite clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Manchester United.
PSG are understood to be Camavinga's preferred option but are unlikely to bid following Lionel Messi's arrival, while Real's financial situation would make a move difficult, leaving the Red Devils as his most likely destination.
United fans are licking their collective lips at the prospect of signing the teenage talent whose latest Instagram post has set tongues wagging among the Old Trafford fanbase.
Camavinga posted an image of his peg inside the Rennes dressing room alongside a hand emoji, which some fans interpreted as him waving goodbye to his current club.
One supporter wrote: "Is that a goodbye wave from Camavinga?"

Someone else said: "He’s leaving."
A third person added: "May be who knows."
The midfielder's current club are becoming frustrated with the transfer circus around their star player, with boss Bruno Genesio hoping that Camavinga's future will be sorted as soon as possible.
Speaking before Rennes' 1-1 draw with Brest on Sunday, Genesio said: "I think a lot of things are happening in his head.
"He’s not able to express his full potential, which he hasn’t lost. Sometimes things happen in your head which means it doesn’t work as well in the legs.
"I’m not here to indulge anyone, I’m here to build a competitive team. He is capable of performing despite what’s being said of him, he didn’t have a catastrophic match, as I’ve read.
"Now, the only explanation is that he has to resolve his situation. As long as he sits on the fence…"
"You have to put yourself in the shoes of an 18-year-old player who’s become an international, and doesn’t know whether he should leave or stay.
"It’s difficult to manage. The difficulty is that young players are very quickly faced with all of these issues."
Reports in recent days have suggested that United could pause their interest in Camavinga this summer and return for the youngster when his contract runs out in less than 12 months time.
