Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is mulling over the possibility of signing Adrien Rabiot.

While Ander Herrera’s has already confirmed his departure from Manchester United on a free transfer, Paul Pogba could very well follow suit, as he has been consistently linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Meanwhile, the futures of Juan Mata and Andreas Pereira continue to hang in the balance, whereas age seems to have caught up to Nemanja Matic, who has been mediocre for a majority of the recently-concluded season.

Therefore, new arrivals, especially in the midfield department, are imminent, and Adrien Rabiot could be one of them.

The Frenchman’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire at the end of the season, which means Manchester United could sign him up for free.

The Red Devils are sure to face heavy competition for the talented midfielder, however, with Chelsea, Juventus, and Tottenham Hotspur rumoured to be interested in his services.

While the quality is there, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and CEO Ed Woodward continue to discuss whether signing Rabiot would be a good move, according to Mirror.

Their uncertainty arises from concerns over the Frenchman’s attitude and behaviour; he has time and again fallen out with a number of PSG managers as well as the France national team gaffer, Didier Deschamps.

Moreover, the 24-year-old, who hasn’t trained with PSG’s first-team since December, is said to be demanding a base salary of £175,000-a-week and a £10m signing-on fee, which is likely to put off several interested parties as well.

It will be interesting to see if Solskjaer proceeds with this signing, especially considering the Norwegian’s aim of building a squad full of humble and hard-working players.
