Reported by Corriere dello Sport and cited by SportWitness, Adrien Rabiot, the Juventus midfield maestro, is firmly on the radar of Manchester United’s boss, Erik ten Hag. The manager is keen to secure the Frenchman’s services on a free transfer.
Rabiot was previously a target for the Red Devils during the last transfer window. Although Manchester United and Juventus agreed on a transfer fee, the deal fell through due to disagreements on personal terms.
Despite this hiccup, Rabiot’s name continues to echo around Old Trafford. As per the latest report from Corriere dello Sport, ten Hag’s interest in the Frenchman has been reignited, especially given that his contract expires in a week.
The skilled midfielder is currently contemplating his next career move, with a strong inclination towards a club participating in the Champions League – an opportunity United can provide.
Rabiot proved his mettle in the recently finished season with Juventus, notching up 11 goals and 6 assists and demonstrating his value throughout the campaign. Now, it appears he is ready for a new adventure.
The £34 million-rated 28-year-old could be a significant asset for United given his extensive experience. Ten Hag’s prior signings of seasoned players like Casemiro and Christian Eriksen indicate that Rabiot’s experience would be valued at United.
Rabiot could bring enhanced creativity and defensive solidity to United’s midfield, potentially outshining current options like Fred, Scott McTominay, and Donny van de Beek.
With United’s anticipated return to Champions League football, Rabiot’s addition would increase the quality depth of the squad.
