Man United open to Rabiot inclusion in Pogba swap deal with Juventus

Manchester United are thought to be open to the idea of taking Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot as part of any deal for Paul Pogba, but only if the money still makes sense for the Red Devils.

Now, if Juventus want to land the Frenchman, they will have to find a way to send some players to Old Trafford in return.

Atletico Madrid prioritise deal for Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette
