Adrien Rabiot is a French midfielder who plays for Juventus. Manchester United has agreed to pay Juventus £15 million to get Rabiot.
The 27-year-plans old’s are still being worked out. Juventus is willing to let him go, but a deal won’t be finalised until his agent and mother, Veronique, agree.
Rabiot has played for his country 29 times and has played for both Toulouse and Paris Saint-Germain. Even though he has won one Serie A and five Ligue 1 titles, his discipline has been all over the place, and he has been punished for things like being late.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of United, is still hoping to sign his top midfield target, Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, even though Barcelona has sent mixed messages about whether or not they will sell the Netherlands playmaker. United would spend €65 million (£55 million) on the deal, plus an extra €20 million. How the extra money would be paid has not yet been decided.
Chelsea is thought to be in the lead for De Jong. They have talked to Barcelona about signing the 25-year-old player, and they think he would rather play for Barcelona than for United. The 25-year-old is still set on staying put, according to the Spanish government.
Marko Arnautovic of Bologna is also a target for United, who started their Premier League season with a 2-1 home loss to Brighton on Sunday. If the team could get Arnautovic, it would give them more ways to attack. The 33-year-worth old’s would be somewhere around £10 million.
Even though United lost to Brighton, Diogo Dalot said that the team’s focus would not change as they went through another rebuilding phase with a new manager.
The fullback called out, “This outcome won’t take our attention away from what we need to do. It’s a setback, but in football you can’t stop for a second. Now we have to look at what went wrong and improve.
“The game still had some positive aspects; we performed better in the second half and had several positive moments. We’ll have some time to plan this week, and I’m sure we’ll play better against Brentford on Saturday.
