Man Utd have been in contact with Adrien Rabiot’s representatives over a possible move from Juventus to Old Trafford, according to reports in Italy.
The Frenchman, who only joined the club in the summer, has started just 11 matches in Serie A and 16 in all competitions this campaign.
Rabiot was frequently linked with a move to the Premier League while at Paris Saint-Germain, though opted to join Juventus on a free transfer.
Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri is overloaded in central midfield, favouring the likes of Miralem Pjanic, Rodrigo Bentancur and Blaise Matuidi and there could be a possibility he is deemed surplus to requirements this summer.
The Red Devils are ‘serious’ about signing Rabiot and the Frenchman’s agent is ‘at work’ trying to seal a move to the Premier League.
The report adds that he would be available for ‘between 25 and 30 million’ euros (£22m-£26m) but the ‘formula [is] still to be defined’.
Meaning that Rabiot could be used as part of a deal to sign Paul Pogba – a long-term target for Juventus – or Man Utd could sign him in a standalone transfer.
