Man United could make their move to sign Adrien Rabiot from Juventus this summer.

Manchester United will need to plug many holes within their squad this coming summer. The Old Trafford club are expecting a large turnover of players as Sir Jim Ratcliffe looks to trim down the wage budget to make room for new signings.

Midfield is one area that could undergo change. Christian Eriksen and Casemiro’s future are far from secure. Mason Mount’s injury problems cast doubts over his availability, too…

One player who could fill that void is Adrien Rabiot. The Frenchman has consistently been linked with a move to Old Trafford for each of the last few seasons. Those stories are not dying just yet…

This time around it’s Calciomercato with the information. They start by stating that Rabiot’s Juventus deal expires in just a couple of months.

As things stand, talks between Rabiot and Juventus are ‘frozen’, while the player’s form has dipped from last season, too.

That said, the Old Lady still want to keep ahold of Rabiot, though talks with his agent (and mother) have not proven to be fruitful thus far.

Rabiot is after increased wages, with the Frenchman wanting a ‘significant’ increase on the £6m-a-year salary he currently earns.

Now, United could make a move to sign the 29-year-old midfielder if Rabiot doesn’t commit his future to Juventus. Newcastle United are also said to be keen on bringing in the World Cup winner.

Apparently, the ‘charm’ of the English top flight has been ‘flattering’ for Rabiot for quite some time, while Calciomercato close by stating that the last couple of months of the season could be crucial for his future.

The verdict

To me, this feels like Rabiot using other interest to earn himself a better deal at Juventus. I’d be highly surprised if the midfielder moves away from Turin this summer, but things can happen very quickly in football so I wouldn’t totally rule it out.
