Manchester United: Red Devils agree Adrien Rabiot deal

Manchester United: Red Devils agree Adrien Rabiot deal -Manchester United News

Manchester United have ‘agreed a deal’ to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to Sky Sports.

The Lowdown: Rabiot profiled

The 27-year-old is primarily a central midfielder who can also play in a holding role when required. The France international has been with Juventus since 2019 and is into the final 12 months of his current contract with the Italian giants.

The midfielder, who has scored 31 goals during his career, has made more than 30 Serie A appearances in each of the past two campaigns, and it looks as if a move to Old Trafford is on the cards.

The Latest: Sky Sports update

Football Daily shared an on-air update from Sky Sports regarding United and Rabiot in the last 24 hours.

They said that ‘Manchester United, we’re told, have agreed a deal with Juventus to sign Adrien Rabiot’, adding that personal terms still need to be finalised.

The Verdict: Panic buy?

Erik ten Hag’s tenure as United manager began in the worst possible way with a 2-1 defeat at home to Brighton on Sunday, with owner Avram Glazer making a rare Old Trafford appearance to watch the game live.

United struggled throughout, and with midfield reinforcements seemingly required, it does appear to have a sense of a panic buy from Old Trafford officials, who are struggling to get a deal over the line for priority target Frenkie de Jong.

Rabiot comes with a reputation for off-field difficulties, which doesn’t appear to be what United need given the reports of dressing room unrest in recent months.

Hopefully the Frenchman will prove to be a shrewd signing who significantly improves Ten Hag’s options in the middle of the park, but only time will tell.
