Man Utd moving ‘strongly’ to agree deal with ‘extraordinary’ star, Ten Hag spoke with him

Manchester United are planning a fresh move for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot whose contract expires at the end of June.

The France international has been long linked with the Red Devils. He was initially on their radar in 2022.

A deal was agreed with the Bianconeri, but it broke down due to a disagreement over personal terms.

This has not ended the speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford.

La Stampa (via Calciomercato) report that the midfielder is drawing interest from United and Bayern Munich.

It is added that United are ‘pressing’ and moving ‘strongly’ to land the 29-year-old.

Juventus have placed contract talks with the Frenchman on standby.

They will decide his future based on the position of manager Massimiliano Allegri and their qualification for the Champions League.

Rabiot to United speculation is purely agent-driven

United manager Erik ten Hag was keen on bringing Rabiot to the club in 2022. He personally spoke with the midfielder to convince him.

However, a deal did not materialise due to differences in personal terms. The hierarchy refused to meet his €10 million per year salary request.

Rabiot stayed with the Bianconeri and he was hugely impressive last term. The Frenchman had 17 goal contributions in 48 games. His performances have not been the same this season.

United have been guilty of handing huge wages to experienced stars who are almost past their prime. Raphael Varane, Casemiro and Christian Eriksen are recent examples.

Rabiot is now eyeing a pay rise to prolong his stay. His agent is probably trying to put pressure on Juventus by reigniting the speculation with United.

Rabiot, who was described as ‘extraordinary‘ by David Trezequet, could still end up in the Premier League with another club. He has long dreamed of playing in England.
