Manchester United are pushing to complete the free transfer of Juventus star Adrien Rabiot, who is out of contract in June.

Juventus agreed a fee with United for the France midfielder last summer but his wage demands saw talks breakdown.

United signed Real Madrid ace Casemiro instead, while Christian Eriksen also arrived.

However, Erik ten Hag retains a strong interest in the former Paris Saint-Germain ace and L’Equipe say he’s spoken to Rabiot about a move to Old Trafford.

With the Frenchman’s deal in Turin set to expire next month, United could sign Rabiot for free and would be more willing to meet his salary demands as they wouldn’t have to put up a fee.

It’s claimed United are now pushing hard to sign Rabiot and that he’s considered an ‘important objective’ for Ten Hag.

Another key target is Harry Kane, who could cost around £100m should Tottenham consider selling to United.

That price, in part, explains why United are keen on Rabiot as they can sign a World Cup winner in a cut-price deal.

United will consider offers for Scott McTominay this summer, while it’s uncertain whether they will look to make Marcel Sabitzer’s move to the club a permanent one.

Rabiot is enjoying his best campaign with Juventus, having scored 11 in all competitions for the Old Lady this term.
