Despite strong ties with Manchester United over the summer, Adrien Rabiot’s move to the Premier League giant did not materialise.
The Juventus midfielder, whose contract is set to expire next summer, had been the subject of transfer speculation.
Nonetheless, Rabiot himself expressed contentment with his situation at the Serie A club, leaving the door open for future possibilities.
His representative, who is also his mother, Veronique Rabiot, recently shed light on the discussions with Manchester United.
In an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, Veronique Rabiot clarified the situation by stating, “All false. United wanted to meet me to illustrate their interest in Adrien, but we never talked about money in detail because he quickly decided to stay in Turin. There were never any real negotiations, and we are on excellent terms with Manchester United.”
The scenario at Old Trafford suggests that Rabiot remains a subject of interest as the team approaches the January window, potentially looking to rejuvenate their squad.
While United’s management, with Erik ten Hag at the helm, faces its own challenges, the future of their pursuit of Rabiot is uncertain, especially if a new manager were to step in.
