Manchester United have reportedly identified Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain box-to-box midfielder Adrien Rabiot as a potential signing this summer.
The Red Devils are known to be in the market for defensive reinforcements during the summer transfer window, while it has also been reported that a new midfielder could arrive at Old Trafford, the news will come as a huge blow for Liverpool who are keeping tabs on his signature since the end of the 2017/18 season.
However, according to AS, the Red Devils may be prepared to join the race for the 23-year-old midfielder and lure him at Old Trafford ahead of the next campaign.
The 23-year-old midfielder has left less than six months left on his current deal at Parc des Princes, and it appears increasingly likely that the Frenchman will depart his current team for free.
Barcelona, Tottenham and Liverpool have all been rumoured with a move for Frenchman, although the player is likely to keep his options open until the summer transfer window re-opens.
Liverpool see the 23-year-old midfielder as an attractive option in the centre of the field as neither Fabinho and Naby Keita have managed to establish themselves at the heart of the Reds midfield area.
The Frenchman likely to leave the PSG on a free transfer after the season ends as he has turned down the Ligue 1 teams offer of a contract extension and he has been on the radar of hosts of European teams.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United have reportedly taken the first steps towards landing Lyon’s in-demand defensive midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, according to a report.
The 22-year-old star is believed to be at the centre of a transfer tug of war between Manchester United and a host of European heavyweights inluding Premier League duo Liverpool and Manchester City.
Le 10 Sport claims that the Red Devils have already made official contact with the four-cap France international star’s representatives as they are desperate to see off the stiff competition from the league rival pair.
Pep Guardiola’s men are believed to have fallen short with a previous bid for Ndombele last summer transfer market, but they will rekindle their interest as the club have yet to bring in a replacement for South American star Fernandinho in the holding midfield position.
And what about Jurgen Klopp’s side, the club have no need of reinforcements in midfield, but the management are still trying to land one midfielder, and it could be Lyon’s one of the prized assets.
Tanguy can also play in a bit more advanced role and has thrived for Les Gones since initially joining on loan the previous season, leading to the French outfit splashing out around £70 million to sign him permanently.
The French club are now rumoured to be after more than £70 million for the former Amiens player, however, with Serie A champions Juventus also being touted as a potential next destination.
This season, in all competitions (Ligue 1, Coupe de France, Champions League, Coupe de la Ligue), the powerful all-around midfielder has made 32 appearances, netted 2 goals and provided 5 assists.
