Manchester United were heavily linked with Adrien Rabiot last year but the French midfielder ended up staying with Juventus.
Now, reports indicate that he is expected to leave the Old Lady on a free transfer and Man Utd are serious about getting the signing done this time.
As per today’s version of Corriere dello Sport (news image below), Juventus are ready to go all in to agree a new contract with the Les Bleus star but they face fierce competition from the Red Devils.
The media outlet have mentioned that Man Utd have moved in with the “greatest decision” to sign Rabiot on a bosman this summer.
The Old Trafford outfit offer Champions League football which was taken away from the Bianconeri after a ten point penalty.
Rabiot currently earns around 7 million euros plus bonuses (£116,000 a week) and the Old Lady have tried offering a one year contract with terms unchanged.
However, they have not been able to reach an agreement and CdS claim the 28-year-old versatile midfielder is “about to leave” the Serie A giants for free.
The former Paris Saint-Germain star, who has won every major domestic prize in French and Italian football, was the best player for Juve last season.
In all competitions, he directly contributed in 17 goals (11 goals and 6 assists) and was impressive for France at the FIFA World Cup last year.
Man Utd have to improve the quality and the depth of the midfield. In your view, should they finally secure the signing of Adrien Rabiot?
