United open to swap deal for Pogba?

Manchester United could be open to selling Paul Pogba to Juventus in a part-exchange deal involving Adrien Rabiot.

Pogba has less than 14 months left on his United deal but the club have the option of triggering a one-year extension to protect his transfer value.

According to Tuttosport, the Red Devils are aware of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic and accept that no club is likely to meet their £100m price tag for Pogba.

Therefore, they are willing to accept a player-plus-cash deal this summer and reports claim that could invite interest from Pogba's former side Juventus.

The Bianconeri are currently looking into the possible sale of Rabiot and it is suggested that they could include the midfielder as a makeweight to re-sign Pogba this summer.

United have been long-term admirers of the former Paris Saint-Germain youngster and recently been suggested that Rabiot would prefer a move to the Premier League.

Rabiot has made only 12 starts for the Bianconeri in the Serie A since his Bosman transfer from Paris Saint-Germain last summer. He is valued at around £35m.
