Man Utd consider bid for Juventus midfielder Rabiot

Juventus Chelsea

The Athletic reports Manchester United are considering signing Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot who has a year left in his contract in Turin.

The France international is one of the highest earners at Juventus with a €7m-a-year salary. He joined the Bianconeri on a free transfer from PSG in 2019, so any sale would allow the Serie A giants to make a capital gain.

The Red Devils are looking to bolster their midfield and according to The Athletic, Rabiot is among their targets for the summer.

David Ornstein reports Rabiot ‘is thought to be high among a number of candidates.’ Manchester United are also interested in Barcelona’s Frankie de Jong and ‘United must decide whether they try to close out this proposed signing irrespective of their ongoing attempts’ to secure the ex-Ajax star.

Although a sale would make sense for Juventus financially, Max Allegri is already dealing with short options in the middle of the park, given that both Paul Pogba and Weston McKennie have been ruled out for several weeks after suffering injuries during the pre-season.

Rabiot, 27, has played 129 games for Juventus, scoring six goals.

Sassuolo midfielder Davide Frattesi is a potential candidate to replace Rabiot as, according to Sky Sport Italia, the Bianconeri have resumed their interest in the Italy international.
