Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly made a last-ditch attempt to keep French midfielder Adrien Rabiot at the Parc de Princes as his current deal expires on July 1.
Rabiot is set to become a free agent after the end of the month and a host of Europe’s biggest team have been credited with an interest to secure the services of 24-year-old Frenchman who has been on sidelines for the almost 2018/19 season.
Juventus were believed to be on the brink of beating the likes of Liverpool, Barcelona and Arsenal the Frenchman’s services having offered him a five-year contract worth €7m (£6.3m).
Man Utd now seems to have joined the race for the Frenchman and see him as a prefect replacement for Ander Herrera who is likely to make a switch to PSG as a free agent in the summer.
However, Football Italia claims that there could be a late twist in negotiations after French champions reappointed sporting director Leonardo, who is keen on to kee Rabiot at the club for the next season.
The report goes on to state that Frenchman has asked Serie A champions, Juventus for a ‘cooling-off period’ to make his decision as he considers an unlikely U-turn to remain with the French champions.
The 24-year-old midfield maestro has not featured for Ligue 1 giants since December due to his contract row, while off-the-field disciplinary problems have resulted in him being suspended from the Tomas Tuchels first-team.
