Manchester United suffered the joint-heaviest defeat in the club’s history on Sunday as rivals Liverpool beat them 7-0 at Anfield. 

Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo each netted braces, before Roberto Firmino added The Reds’ seventh late on.

The result shocked supporters of both sides, with Erik ten Hag’s team having impressed in recent months.

The likes of Marcus Rashford, Casemiro and Luke Shaw have all been in fine form since the World Cup, but The Red Devils’ performance was well below par at Anfield.

Now, it appears that United are planning to bolster their squad this summer with a lucrative offer to land a free agent.

According to Football Insider, United are plotting a ‘huge’ offer for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The Frenchman’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the current season and he will likely have a number of clubs interested in his services when the window opens this summer.

It is claimed that United were close to signing the France international last summer when a fee was agreed between the two clubs, but the move never materialised.

Rabiot is a target for Manchester United this summer

Now, The Red Devils are set to return for the midfielder, who is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any foreign club at present as he is in the final six months of his deal with Juventus.

Rabiot, 27, moved to Turin from French Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain back in 2019 and has since made more than 150 appearances for The Old Lady.

United signed both Casemiro and Christian Eriksen last summer, and also added midfielder Marcel Sabitzer to their squad in January.

The Austria international is expected to leave the club when his loan deal expires this summer, though, while the futures of Fred and Scott McTominay remain uncertain.

United’s rivals Manchester City are also said to be interested in the Frenchman and could move for him if Ilkay Gundogan departs The Etihad when his contract expires this summer.
