According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are considering a move for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Rabiot will be available on a free transfer this summer as his contract with the French champions expires at the end of next month.
The France international has not actually turned out for PSG since the start of December after failing to agree a new deal with the Ligue 1 giants.
According to the Manchester Evening News, United have been ‘monitoring’ the situation for some time and could now make a swoop.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are absolutely crying out for a new midfielder this summer, particularly with Ander Herrera moving on, and there are a number of United fans who want Rabiot to arrive at Old Trafford.

However, other supporters have offered up potential alternatives to the France international, who will not be short of interest this summer.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the United fanbase can be seen below:

This would be fantastic transfer. He is not worse than Herrera, he’s 25 and he’s going to cost us nothing. Fare enough

Not even 24 yet and he’s really good. Attitude is what he needs to work on. We already have Martial, we don’t need another loose cannon.
