What's the news?

According to the reports by AS, Manchester United could be in for the PSG midfielder, Adrien Rabiot in the summer.

In case you didn't know...

Adrien Rabiot joined PSG academy in 2010 and made his professional debut for the club in 2012. He played 185 games in all competitions for the Parisiens thus far, scoring 17 goals.

However, his current contract with the club will expire at the end of the current season and he is looking for a move away from the club. PSG wanted to offload Rabiot in January but failed to get a suitable taker for him.

On the other hand, Manchester United revived their season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and are currently fourth in the Premier League table. The Red Devils will be looking to strengthening their squad in the summer in order to win their first Premier League title since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The heart of the matter

According to the reports by AS (via the Sun), Manchester United are interested in signing PSG midfielder, Adrien Rabiot in summer.

The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season and is mulling over his options.

Rabiot did not play for PSG since December 11 when he came on as a late second-half substitute in a routine Champions League win at Red Star Belgrade.

Rumor Ratings- 5/10

AS is one of the most reliable sources when it comes to football transfer news. However, with big clubs like Liverpool and Bayern Munich also in contention to sign him, United's qualification for the Champions League next season will play a key role in signing the talented Frenchman.

What's next?

Manchester United will be Paris St. Germain at Old Trafford for the first leg of the Champions League round-of-16 tie later today.
