Manchester United, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur are all reportedly interested in signing Rennes winger Desire Doue. The talented youngster is drawing a lot of attention after a successful 2023-24 season, where he scored four goals and provided six assists in 31 Ligue 1 games.

His impressive performances have caught the eye of France Under-23 coach Thierry Henry, who has included him in the 18-man squad for the 2024 Olympics.

Doue is excited to represent France on home soil, but there's some uncertainty about where he'll play next season. According to The Sun, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Tottenham are all keen to sign him this summer.

The report suggests these Premier League teams are gearing up for a bidding war to boost their attacking options. Chelsea and Tottenham both see Doue as a top priority and have already started talks with his representatives about a possible move.

The two London clubs are negotiating with Rennes, aiming to close a deal by next week. Meanwhile, Manchester United is also very interested in the versatile winger and are closely monitoring his situation at Rennes.

While these English clubs are eager to sign Doue, he might end up at another top European club. Journalist Abdellah Boulma reports that Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are currently leading the race for Doue's signature, with Bayern slightly ahead. However, other clubs still have a chance to make a move.

With Doue under contract until the summer of 2026, Rennes are looking for a fee around €40m.
