According to a report by TEAMtalk, Adrien Rabiot is the subject of interest from Manchester United.

The Adrien Rabiot story at Juventus

Adrien Rabiot has been one of the best players in Serie A since joining Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain in a Bosman move in July 2019. The Frenchman is one of the shining lights in an inconsistent team, with the Serie A giants struggling to impose themselves in the last few seasons.

The 29-year-old has turned out over 200 times thus far for Juventus, chipping in with 22 goals and 15 assists. However, Rabiot’s long-term future at the Allianz Stadium is uncertain, as his contract will run out in a few days. The situation has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, including Arsenal, Aston Villa, and Manchester United.

A man in demand

Arsenal will likely delve into the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window. The North London club might part ways with Thomas Partey in the coming weeks, thus necessitating the arrival of a new midfielder. Recent reports have also claimed that Arsenal might hike Adrien Rabiot’s wages.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa’s interest in Adrien Rabiot is understandable. The West Midlands club will part ways with Douglas Luiz in a few days, with the Brazilian international coincidentally on the verge of joining Juventus. The French international has thus emerged as a viable target for Aston Villa.

As for Manchester United, they are scouring the market for a midfielder heading into the summer transfer window amid uncertainties surrounding the futures of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, and Donny van de Beek. And the Red Devils have held preliminary talks with Rabiot’s representatives.

Recent reports have claimed that the 29-year-old Frenchman is waiting for Manchester United to submit an offer to sign him. So, Manchester United might be in the pole position to sign the Juventus midfielder in a Bosman move ahead of Arsenal and Aston Villa.
