Manchester United and Newcastle United are reportedly in talks with Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot over a potential move to the Premier League this summer.

Manchester United have reportedly opened talks with Juventus' Adrien Rabiot over a potential move to England during the summer transfer window.

The 29-year-old is enjoying a productive season for the Old Lady in Serie A, finding the net on four occasions and providing three assists in 25 league appearances.

Juventus are currently third in the top-flight standings, 20 points behind first-placed Inter Milan and seven ahead of fifth-placed Roma heading into the final moments of the campaign.

Rabiot remains an important member for his national side on the international stage, representing 2018 World Cup winners France during their March friendlies.

Since making the switch to the Allianz Stadium from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer of 2019, the midfielder has made 204 appearances for the Old Lady, scoring 21 times.

Man Utd open talks with Juventus man Rabiot?

According to Calciomercato, Man United have commenced talks with Juventus midfielder Rabiot over a possible switch to Old Trafford ahead of the 2024-25 campaign.

The report claims that contract negotiations between the Frenchman and the Old Lady have stalled, meaning that he could depart on a free transfer.

Rabiot is said to earn £150,000 per week in Turin on his current deal, with Juventus reluctant to continue that salary structure amid their financial issues.

The midfielder's contract situation has put a number of top sides around Europe on high alert ahead of the summer trading point, including Erik ten Hag's Red Devils.

Man United are looking for midfield reinforcements ahead of the new campaign, with the likes of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen potentially leaving the club.

Newcastle United also keen on Rabiot

On top of the Red Devils, it is claimed that Newcastle United are also interested in securing the services of France international Rabiot in the summer.

The Magpies could be forced to sell a number of high-value players in the off-season in order to stay in line with the Premier League's Profit and Sustainability rules.

Bruno Guimaraes has been attracting interest from both Manchester City and PSG, with the Brazil international having a £100m release clause in his contract in the North-East.

Therefore, Rabiot could be viewed by Eddie Howe's side as a replacement for Guimaraes, with the potential of securing the Frenchman on a free transfer a massive boost financially.
