Juventus are prepared to offer Adrien Rabiot to Manchester United as part of their bid to sign Paul Pogba, according to reports.

United re-signed Pogba from Juventus for £89 million in 2016 but the France international now wants to leave Old Trafford.

Juventus are in the running to sign Pogba for a second time and the Serie A champions are reportedly confident that an agreement can be reached with United.

According to The Sun, Juve believe United would accept a deal worth around £85 million to sell Pogba in the January transfer window.

The report claims that Juve value Rabiot, who was signed on a free transfer last summer, at £25m and are ready to offer an additional £60m cash.

Rabiot is also wanted by Arsenal with Mikel Arteta identifying the 24-year-old as a player who can improve his options in midfield.

But following Calum Chambers’ long-term injury, the Gunners have now switched their focus on signing a new central defender as a priority and talks have opened with Bayern Munich over a potential deal for Jerome Boateng.

Juventus, meanwhile, are open to offloading Rabiot less than a year after his arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking last month, Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri admitted that the midfielder, who has started just five games in Serie A this season, has struggled to adjust since his move to Turin.

‘He has struggled to settle into our football, but that is normal,’ said Sarri.

‘He is also quite introverted, which doesn’t help him to settle.’
