While the quality is there, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and CEO Ed Woodward continue to discuss whether signing Rabiot would be a good move, according to Mirror. The Red Devils need serious reinforcements this summer after they ended the season on a weak note, succumbing to a defeat against relegated Cardiff City.
Reports in the media suggest Manchester United are willing to accept Rabiot's wage demands.
Man Utd are also reportedly in the market for another midfielder after Ander Herrera confirmed he'll be leaving the club when his contract expires next month and the Mirror claim Rabiot has emerged as a potential target.
As per a report from Duncan Castles of the Daily Record, Manchester United have made contact with Lille over the potential summer signing of Nicolas Pepe. His performance this season has been impressive and it might be what interested Manchester United.
The gifted African has notched 20 goals and 11 assists across 36 league outings for Christophe Galtier's Lille, proving one of the key contributors to Les Dogues' surprise charge to second-place in the French top-flight. His pace and direct dribbling can get the fans at Old Trafford off their feet, while also providing the much-needed impetus to carry the ball into the attack which has been sorely missing in United's play in this season's disappointing campaign.
But that is not what struck me about this particular rumour, different clubs, including us, are seen as the front runners depending on how the wind is blowing that day, so I am not concerned about other clubs being considered the favourites right now.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is mulling over the possibility of signing Adrien Rabiot.
Nicolas Pepe has been one of Lille's best player this season and could be another good addition but it remains to be seen if the Manchester club could beat Paris Saint Germain's interest.
