The Frenchman is understood to be ready to hand in a transfer request at United to force a move out ahead of the new season.

With age still on his side, the attacking central midfielder would perfectly fit Pogba's shoes.

Rabiot did not feature at all for Paris Saint-Germain in the New Year and was also labelled as a "contract rebel" by the club's board of directors.

As such, United stands a pole position to land him this summer.

Zidane wants the French midfielder linking up with other new signings Rodrygo Goes, Eder Militao, Luca Jovic, Eden Hazard and Ferland Mendy.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka has only spent one season in the English top flight but his impressive performances have propelled him to be one of the best right-backs in the league and Crystal Palace are demanding at least £50m excluding any add-ons.

The Red Devils have been frustrated in their negotiations with fellow Premier League club Crystal Palace over the potential transfer of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Pichai said the homes will be affordable for "all income levels" including middle- and low-income families. It also pledged $50 million in Google.org grants to nonprofits focused on homelessness and displacement.

The academy product definitely has a desire to win trophies and playing for Madrid is now the more likely club to grant him that.

He has in the recent past been linked with Man United and it is now an open secret Barcelona would not mind losing him.

But, Manchester United are reportedly keen on keeping the midfielder at Old Trafford and will offer Pogba £500,000-a-week to convince him to stay at the club, as per Daily Mail.

If that figure is indeed accurate, he would match Alexis Sanchez's astronomical wage.

But having seen Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia leave as free agents at the end of last season, five months after the £10.5m sale of Marouane Fellaini to Shandong Luneng, Solskjaer has been told that his initial rebuilding plans must be financed by the £100m transfer fund.

And it is understood that the Norwegian is willing to make the World Cup victor the new leader of his team with hope of convincing the Frenchman to stay at United.
