Erik ten Hag has taken over a mess of a side and needs funds to quickly reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window.
Lately, Manchester United have been in deep discussions to sign Adrien Rabiot and reports coming from Italy this morning are highly positive.
According to a story covered by Corriere dello Sport (news image provided below), all parties are hoping to reach a quick agreement for the transfer of the midfielder.
The renowned news source have mentioned that after talks with the agent, Veronique, the French international is now “ever closer” to sealing a move to Man United.
It is stated that a conclusion can be reached soon and Juve want to get the deal done swiftly so that they can complete the signing of Leandro Paredes from Paris Saint-Germain.
Rabiot earns around £114k-a-week and his mother has been demanding a salary of £162k-a-week to move to Old Trafford (La Gazzetta Dello Sport).
Man United need new energy in the center of the park. They were outrun and outclassed by Brentford at the weekend and face even a tougher test against Liverpool next.
Rabiot is not Ten Hag’s first choice but with Frenkie de Jong refusing to move to Old Trafford, the Les Bleus midfielder can come in to reinforce the department. He would surely be an upgrade to McFred.
