Deal Completed – Man Utd chief John Murtough ‘boards flight’ to seal fourth summer signing for Erik ten Hag

According to sources, Manchester United football director John Murtough is traveling to meet Adrien Rabiot’s mother and agent, Veronique, in order to finalize the club’s fourth summer signing. The Red Devils are said to have agreed on a fee of £15 million with Juventus for the Frenchman, and a deal is expected to be completed soon.

 

However, the final hurdle looks to be reaching personal terms with the player and Veronique Rabiot, a famously difficult negotiator.

 

She has been at the center of several public squabbles, including one with PSG, which moved the midfielder to Juventus in 2019.

 

According to The Telegraph, Murtough is now on his way to secure United’s fourth summer signing after Tyrell Malaca, Lisandro Martinez, and Christian Eriksen.

 

Erik ten Hag is alleged to have personally backed a deal for Rabiot, who is understood to be receptive to the move.

 

The Dutchman simply needs reinforcements after being dealt a harsh reality check on Sunday as Brighton won all three points at Old Trafford.

 

The Seagulls won their first game of the season 2-1, heaping misery on the new United manager, who now realizes the magnitude of the task at hand.

 

Ten Hag is believed to have told Rabiot that he wants him to join his United initiative before a possible transfer.

 

Rabiot has expressed a desire to play on English soil, having previously been linked with moves to Everton and Arsenal.

“It all comes down to results.” We are all aware that we are in the midst of a process. There are still many things that could be better. We must learn from this and then go on.”

 

United is also looking for more attacking reinforcements, with Cody Gakpo being one of the names of interest.

 

The Red Devils had been in talks with Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko before RB Leipzig beat them to the highly rated Slovenian.

 

With Frenkie de Jong still appearing out of reach, the team is now looking into alternative midfield options.
