Manchester United are being linked with Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

United manager Erik ten Hag wants to add quality in central midfield and a 2-1 loss against Brighton in their Premier League opener on Sunday may have sharpened his focus.

The Athletic says Frenchman Rabiot has emerged as a leading option for the Red Devils as they look to add to the squad.

However, United 'must decide' whether they want to continue chasing the signing of Rabiot as well as, or instead of, Barcelona's Frenkie de Jong, who is their top midfield target.

Rabiot, 27, is into the last year of his contract with the Italian giants, meaning a team outside Italy could approach to sign him in summer 2023 on a free transfer.
