Report: Manchester United make contact with Adrien Rabiot, Arsenal and Everton remain keen

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Manchester United have made contact with Everton and Arsenal target, Adrien Rabiot. 

The Red Devils have apparently made their presence known when it comes to Rabiot. The Frenchman is expected to be available this summer after failing to impress following a move to Turin from PSG.

And despite interest from the likes of Arsenal and Everton, it is United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who have made a move to declare their interest.

The Mirror claim that Juve may be willing to sell Rabiot for as little as £27m. That would be a bargain in the current market for a player of his calibre.

Rabiot has previously been compared to Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal, and Claudio Marchisio by Italian legend, Gianluigi Buffon.


Buffon told Goal of the ‘incredible’ talent Rabiot possesses. High praise indeed from one of the true legends of the game over the last three decades.

United could well have an advantage when it comes to landing Rabiot, too. Paul Pogba is still being courted by Juventus, meaning Solskjaer and Ed Woodward may use Rabiot as part of any deal.

If United are to lose Pogba, then signing someone like Rabiot will ease the blow significantly. The 25-year-old is still a top player despite a season of struggle over in Italy.

Rabiot has long been touted for a move to the Premier League. A number of clubs were interested before he opted for Turin after seeing his contract in Paris run down.

News of United’s interest is a blow for both Arsenal and Everton, however. Despite current financial results, United still have the spending power to blow both out of the water if needs be.
