Man United Keen On Signing French Midfielder Adrien Rabiot From Juventus.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a fee in principle with Juventus for Adrien Rabiot but have to enter talks over personal terms with the player's agent his mother.

According to David Ornstein (The Athletic), The Red Devils have identified Rabiot as a leading candidate to solve their current midfield issues.

“United must decide whether they try to close out this proposed signing irrespective of their ongoing attempts to secure Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong or wait to discover how that pursuit finishes before making a decision on Rabiot.... The reports states.

“They would also need to agree personal terms with the former Paris Saint-Germain player, who is thought to be high among a number of candidates.”

The 27 year old who has been with the Old Lady side since 2019, is currently into the final year of his contract at Juventus and has now emerged as a shock option for Erik ten Hag’s side.

United’s pursuit of Frenkie de Jong has stalled due to the deferred payments Barcelona owe the player.

The Frenchman wouldn’t cost a lot so United could be looking at doing this deal irrespective of signing De Jong.

The imminent signing of Rabiot to United despite looking like an upgrade to McTominay and Fred, has certainly caused some divided opinion among the fans, as Rabiot mum has created a toxic environment wherever he's gone.
