Everton have made an offer to Juventus for midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who could end up facing competition from Manchester United for his signature.
That’s according to Calciomercato, who cover the Frenchman’s future at the Serie A giants this summer.
They explain that while he has been improving on the pitch under Andrea Pirlo this season, Rabiot has not managed to ‘sweep away’ all the doubts about his value.
That is mainly due to the €7m per season (almost certainly after tax) he currently earns at the club, a figure that they seemingly think could be better spent elsewhere.
Thus there are doubts about his future, and Everton are one of those who are keen on signing him, with ‘an offer’ having arrived from Goodison Park ‘in the last few months’.
Their interest comes via Carlo Ancelotti, who handed Rabiot his debut at Paris Saint Germain and has remained a big fan of the player ever since.
Manchester United are also in the mix, though, albeit because of Juventus. According to the report, Juventus have offered the midfielder to United as a ‘quid pro quo’ to bring Paul Pogba back to Turin.
The Frenchman, of course, has been heavily linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer as his contract enters its final year.
His agent Mino Raiola has heavily hinted at a move elsewhere in recent months, and it seems Juventus have tried to steal a march by suggesting the clubs trade players.
How Manchester United responded to this offer isn’t mentioned, nor are the details of Everton’s bid for that matter, but either way, it appears Rabiot could end up at either club come the summer.
