Kim Min-Jae isn’t the only Serie A name on the radar of Manchester United.

Ten Hag has reportedly spoken with the Frenchman about a free transfer in the summer but the player is weighing his options up.
It is believed that Adrien Rabiot dreams of playing in the Premier League.
Manchester United are said to be keen on wrapping this deal up as soon as possible.
Despite these strong rumours, there is still no clarity on the Manchester United takeover with contrasting reports suggesting Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatar’s Sheikh Jassmin are still battling it out for the ownership of the club.
This uncertainty also leads to a doubt in Man United’s budget for the upcoming transfer window.
