Manchester United have held a round of talks with the camp of Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Representatives of United recently met with Rabiot's mother Veronique - who acts as his agent - to discuss his availability.
Rabiot has had a tough first season in Turin after his free transfer move there last summer from Paris Saint-Germain and has struggled to find a place in the first-team under Maurizio Sarri.
There were also claims in the Italian press earlier this month that he had gone on strike over Juventus' decision to cut his wages by £7million from £28m due to the coronavirus crisis.
The 25-year-old attracted interest from the Premier League when he was at PSG and he is again on the radar of clubs from England.
Manchester United are regarded as favourites to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
United have been long time admirers of the centre-back who turns 29 this month and has attracted interest from an array of top European clubs.
Should he leave Naples in the summer then United are favourites to land him in a deal which could be for just £80million.
Although the fee still remains high, it comes following Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis having rejected offers for around £90million last year.
The lower fee now comes as a result of the coronavirus outbreak that has wreaked financial havoc to teams across Europe.
French reports also claim that European rivals including Paris-Saint Germain, Barcelona and Real Madrid have opted to focus on other targets, but United still have competition domestically, including from Liverpool.
