TheAthletic says United considered signing Camavinga two years ago but made a move for a different player instead.
The Red Devils are looking to wrap up their transfer business as soon as possible this summer with Jadon Sancho already agreed.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to reinforce his midfield and sees Camavinga as the ideal solution.
United could have signed Camavinga two years ago but instead opted to sign Hannibal Mejbri from Monaco for £8.5m.
The midfielder has wowed coaches since signing for the club but has made just one first-team appearance.
However, there is real hope that Hannibal could be a superstar in the future, yet there could be some regrets over their pursuit of Camavinga.
