Deal Done – Manchester United fans welcome fourth signing as Fabrizio drops another update on the 150m p/w star

Manchester United and Juventus have reached an agreement to sign Adrien Rabiot.
Juventus has agreed to sell Adrien Rabiot to Manchester United on personal terms; United was anticipated to re-enter the market with a higher bid for Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic, but they have backed out of the agreement. Benjamin Sesko, a former target, has joined RB Leipzig.

Manchester United has agreed to sign Adrien Rabiot from Juventus.

 

Personal details must still be arranged with his agency and mother, Veronique before the transaction is finalized.

 

Rabiot, who signed as a free agent with Juventus in the summer of 2019, is in the final year of his deal and has fallen out of favor with the Italian giants.

 

Juventus are content to let Rabiot leave the club this summer before his contract expires in 2023.

 

United have continued to work on all midfield possibilities as a transfer for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong has been difficult, but they have not given up on a deal for de Jong, and there is still hope that one can be struck.

 

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has stated that there have been offers, but that De Jong wishes to remain and that the club wishes him to remain. However, economic concerns persist, and the question of De Jong’s deferred salaries remains unresolved.

 

United has made central midfield a priority all summer, and adding both Rabiot and De Jong is not out of the question.

 

Rabiot had a brief time in Manchester City’s youth system before making his professional debut with Paris Saint-Germain in his native France a decade ago.

 

Before joining Juventus three years ago, he made 227 appearances for PSG and won five league titles. Rabiot started 28 Serie A games last season.

 

Meanwhile, United was anticipated to re-enter the market with a better offer for Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic but has abandoned their chase to pursue other options.

 

United’s proposal of £7.6 million (€9 million) for the striker was rejected over the weekend, according to Sky Italia. The asking price was thought to be higher than what United was willing to pay.
