Man United lead race to sign World Cup finalist, doesn’t want PSG

Posted by

After a successful first season in charge of Manchester United, Erik ten Hag will be hoping for support in the transfer market as he looks to bolster his squad.

In midfield, when several players were dealing with long-term ailments and Casemiro was clearly the only option, it was not surprising to see the Dutchman rotate relatively little.

But because United will be expected to perform well across the board in the upcoming campaign, it will be important to rotate the group and keep players fresh.

A quick and flexible midfielder is needed by United.

Both Scott McTominay and Fred’s futures are up in the air, and a new midfielder will undoubtedly join the team if any or both depart.

A bid for Chelsea’s Mason Mount appears to be quite well along, according to rumours, while a Bosman transfer for Adrien Rabiot cannot be completely ruled out.

The Frenchman was very nearly signed by the Red Devils last summer, but the deal fell through at the last minute due to the player’s agency and mother Veronique’s wage demands.

Now, Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) has disclosed that the France international has his “bags ready” after finishing his Juventus contract.

After four trophy-filled seasons in which he won the Serie A, Coppa Italia, and Italian Super Cup once each, the footballer is about to leave Turin despite the Old Lady’s best efforts to keep him.

On the cards, Rabiot moves

Since he will be a free agent and United will have learned their lesson from last summer, they anticipate having “fewer complications” signing him.

The Qatar World Cup finalist’s former club Paris Saint-Germain is reportedly making an effort to get him back, but the source claimed that Ten Hag’s team is “ahead at the moment” in the hunt for the 28-year-old.

Rabiot has had his most productive season in terms of goal involvements, appearing in 48 games across all competitions and scoring 11 goals and dishing out a further six assists.

Rabiot can play the defensive pivot position, but he really shines as the No. 8 since that is where he can carry the ball into the other half and make swerving runs into the box.
