Manchester United reach agreement to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot for initial £15m
According to reports, Manchester United and Juventus have reached an agreement for the initial £15 million purchase of France midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

According to Sky Sports, negotiations over the player’s personal terms are still in the early stages. While Juventus is willing to let the 27-year-old player go, approval from the player’s agent and mother, Veronique, is necessary for a deal to move forward.

Rabiot, who signed a free-agent contract with Juventus in the summer of 2019, is in the final year of his deal and has lost favor with the Italian powerhouse.

Rabiot’s deal with Juventus expires in 2023, therefore the club is reportedly content with letting him depart this summer.

Rabiot has previously played for Paris Saint-Germain and Toulouse and has 29 international caps. He has won five Ligue 1 and one Serie A title but has a record of uneven discipline, including being fined for lateness.

United have continued to work on all midfield options as a transfer for Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong has been a complicated one to do, but they have not given up on a deal for de Jong, and there is still a belief there is a deal to be done.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has reiterated that there have been offers but has indicated that de Jong wants to stay, and that the club want him to stay. However, economic issues have not gone away and the matter of de Jong’s deferred wages remains unresolved.

Meanwhile, United are also expected to go back in with an improved offer for Bologna’s Marko Arnautovic.
