United are back on the up after placing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in interim charge until the end of the season.
After a string of fantastic results, the Norwegian is in the prime position to land the full-time job.
And as such, the Red Devils are planning a massive summer of spending to take them back to challenging for the Premier League title.
They are currently fifth in the table, battling with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea for a position in the top four.
But they are not just at odds with them on the pitch but off it too, and are fighting to land one star in particular.
PSG midfielder Rabiot looks set on leaving at the end of the season after rejecting the chance to negotiate a new contract at the club.
It has led to the French club ostracising the midfielder, who was seen partying the night after their defeat in the Champions League – to United of all sides.

Several top clubs across Europe are interested in his signature, including Barcelona and Tottenham.
But The Sun report that Rabiot has spoken to Arsenal and Chelsea over a potential move in the summer – but United are now edging forward.
However, the 23-year-old is playing hardball and wants £200,000-a-week as well as a £10m signing-on fee.
But The Sun report that the Old Trafford outfit are ready to pay him what he wants as Solskjaer looks to builds own United.
An Old Trafford source said: “There is interest there.
“His advisers look to be offering him around though.
“The boss is well aware of his ability.
“We are on the lookout for a midfield link player for the long-term.”
