Another day, another story linking Manchester United with Adrien Rabiot as Ten Hag looks to bolster his midfield department this summer.
As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), Juventus are ready to sell the Frenchman to Man United to replace him with Leandro Paredes.
The Italian news source have mentioned that the Red Devils have agreed a fee worth 17 million euros (£14.4m) with the Old Lady.
Moreover, in the last few hours, significant steps have been taken to agree personal terms in order to finally seal the signing,
The Old Trafford outfit continue to discuss the details with Rabiot’s agent-mother and the talks have been positive. On the other hand, Ten Hag has personally called the 27-year-old midfielder to hire his services.
Juventus want to conclude the deal as soon as possible so that they can complete the signing of Leandro Paredes from Paris Saint-Germain.
CdS claim the Bianconeri have already reached an agreement with the Argentine international and the French champions are pushing to replace him with Fabian Ruiz, who has also been on Man Utd’s radar.
Rabiot is an energetic midfielder, who can press and break play but he is not renowned for regularly contributing in goals. In fact, last season, he failed to score even a single goal for the Serie A giants.
The arrival of the Les Bleus star may end the McFred partnership in the center of the park but can he really solve the midfield conundrum at the club?
