Manchester United are interested in signing PSG contract rebel Adrien Rabiot with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly a fan of the French midfielder.
Rabiot was not part of the PSG squad that were knocked out of the Champions League by United earlier this month, having been demoted to the reserves after making it clear he would run down his contract and leave on a free transfer.
He had been expected to join Barcelona, though that deal now appears to be dead, and looks likeliest to move to the Premier League with Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs all interested.
But now The Sun report that United are positioning themselves to make a play for Rabiot, who is demanding wages of around £200,000-a-week and a £10m signing-on fee.
That is not a problem for United, with Solskjaer willing to pay up for a player he believes has great ability.
Rabiot was a key part of PSG’s midfield until it became clear he would not renew his deal and the decision to ostracise him was made by sporting director Antero Henriquez not manager Thomas Tuchel.
