Euro Paper Talk: Solskjaer to make stylish free agent his first Man Utd signing

Date published: Saturday 16th March 2019 1:21

Manchester United have told a top target they will give him huge wages and signing-on fees to join this summer, while Tottenham are in the market for a €60m striker, according to Saturday’s European papers.



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly close to making PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot his first signing for Manchester United.

The France star has been phased out by the Ligue 1 giants after it became apparent he wouldn’t be signing a new deal and emerged as a top target for a number of Premier League clubs.

But French outlet Mercato365 claim it is United who are leading the charge for Rabiot and have already held talks with the player’s agent over a potential summer move.

It’s claimed Solskjaer has targeted a man who can link up defence and attack and Rabiot – who will be available on a free transfer with his contract at the Parc des Princes set to expire on June 30 – seen as the Norwegian’s top choice.

Claims that United are keen to sign Rabiot have been further credited by The Sun, who claims United have told Rabiot they are willing to pay him £200,000 a week over a four-year deal and meet his demands for a £10million signing on fee.
