Man Utd offer contract to “complete” £150k-p/w machine, it’s bad news for Fred

Posted by

Erik ten Hag is looking to improve his midfield options for the upcoming season, and Manchester United is interested in signing Adrien Rabiot this summer.

What has happened with Adrien Rabiot and Manchester United recently?
Rabiot has reportedly been extended a contract by United ahead of a potential summer transfer, according to RMC Sport (via the Daily Mail).

It follows a failed attempt to sign the Frenchman by the Old Trafford side a year prior, despite a fee being agreed upon. The deal collapsed because of wage demands. Ten Hag is trying for a second chance at the cherry because his contract expires at the end of this season. He is hoping for success with this attempt.

In the coming summer, might Man United acquire Rabiot?
As Rabiot’s contract with Juventus expires, United won’t have to worry about paying a transfer fee and may be able to offer the midfielder a higher salary to negotiate a move.

A bad outcome for Fred could result from persuading the Frenchman that joining United is the best choice for him. Fred might then be let go before the end of the current term.

There is no question that the Brazilian has improved under the Dutchman, finding new life playing alongside Casemiro, a player who is truly a world-class operator. Despite starting just 11 Premier League games this season, the Brazilian has chipped in with three goal contributions, created three significant chances, and made 1.3 tackles per game, demonstrating that he is contributing when needed.

Given that the 30-year-old’s current contract expires in just one year, Ten Hag may be free to let him go this summer in order to make room for Rabiot.

With club and country, the Juventus star has experienced a resurgence in his career this year. With an overall rating of 7.06/10 on Sofascore for his Serie A performances this season, the 28-year-old is rated as the best midfielder in the Juventus squad. He has also contributed with eight goals and one assist, showing how valuable he can be going forward, which could be a huge plus for Ten Hag.

During their journey to the World Cup final in Qatar last year, France’s £150,000 weekly machine was performing admirably. He contributed to two goals over the course of six games and had an average of 61.5 touches per game, directing play from midfield as France narrowly missed winning the tournament again.

He is undoubtedly a “complete midfielder,” as national coach Didier Deschamps described him, and he could strengthen United’s lineup in time for Ten Hag’s second season in charge.
