Manchester United’s pursuit of a top midfielder continues, as the deal of Adrien Rabiot has fallen through despite an agreed-upon sum.
Corriere Dello Sport reported two days ago that the former PSG player is getting closer to joining the Red Devils, who have already reached an agreement with Juventus.
Personal terms were expected to be difficult to negotiate with the player’s mother and agent, Veronique, and after severe demands, United chose to back out of the contract.
According to noted journalist David McDonnell, Manchester United offered a deal of roughly £250,000 per week or £13 million per year.
A deal like this would have more than doubled the Frenchman’s income, which is presently roughly £114,000 per week (GDS)
However, Rabiot sought more than £250,000 per week, and the Old Trafford club has decided to stop its interest in the 27-year-old.
Erik ten Hag’s predicament is deteriorating, as he desperately needs a quality midfielder before United’s match against archrivals Liverpool next week.
According to The Telegraph, after failing to negotiate personal terms with the Les Bleus midfielder, Manchester United is now interested in signing Real Madrid’s Casemiro.
According to a reputable news source, Ten Hag is anxious to entice the Brazilian international to reinforce things in the center, and the Red Devils could launch a £50 million bid.
The five-time Champions League winner is still an important element of Real Madrid’s squad, and I doubt he’ll want to play for United and compete in the Europa League this season. What are your thoughts?
