Man Utd plot Ligue 1 raid on young stars Pepe, Rabiot

Manchester United are ready to launch a mega spend on three major signings this summer.

The Mirror says United are weighing up a £45million move for Lille striker Nicolas Pepe this summer.

Pepe has been in superb form for Lille this season, scoring 21 goals and providing 12 assists, his exploits making him a target for United, as well as PSG and Arsenal.

Another player on United's radar this summer is PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who has been frozen out by the French champions and not played since December.

Rabiot has been made an outcast by the PSG hierarchy for refusing to sign a new deal and will be able to leave this summer for free, with Juventus and Chelsea also assessing him.

United's top transfer target this summer remains Borussia Dortmund's £100m-rated England forward Jado Sancho, who left Manchester City last summer.
