    ARSENAL face competition from Manchester United to sign Adrien Rabiot on a free transfer.

    The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder is braced to leave the French capital for nothing after refusing to pen a new contract.

    Rabiot, 24, has been frozen out at the champions having not featured since December.

    According to Manchester Evening News, United are ready to offer him an escape route as he plots his next destination.

    The Red Devils have been long-term admirers of Rabiot having followed his progress since Louis van Gaal was manager.

    Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is prioritising signing a new central midfielder following the departure of Ander Herrera, who is going the other way.

    HENRIKH MKHITARYAN has total support from Arsenal after pulling out of Wednesday’s Europa League final — but they will not stop him leaving this summer.

    There is a general acceptance at the Emirates that the 30-year-old, signed from Manchester United in January 2018, will never play at the peak of his powers in the Premier League.

    Arsenal would dearly love to get Mesut Ozil, another big earner off the books as well, but he has indicated that he loves London life far too much.

    The German playmaker is tied down in North London until 2021, but he has made it clear he has no plans to depart the Gunners.

    Asked recently whether he wants to stay at the club, the 2014 World Cup winner said: “Absolutely. I've got two more years on my contract.

    “I don't know after that but I've got two years left.”
