Collapsed Offer: Manchester United’s £15m Rabiot Deal



About Adrien Rabiot

On April 3, 1995, Adrien Rabiot was born at Saint Maurice, France. He is a French professional footballer who plays for Serie A club Juventus and the France national team as a central midfielder.

Rabiot spent most of his career with Paris Saint-Germain, where he made his debut in 2012 and won eighteen major awards, including five Ligue 1 titles and a domestic treble in 2015-16 and 2017-18. Rabiot joined Juventus on a free transfer in 2019, winning the Serie A title in his first season and the Coppa Italia in his second.

Rabiot played 53 times for France at the junior level before making his senior squad debut in 2016 and later competing at UEFA Euro 2020.

In an injury-time appearance during a 4-0 home victory over Dinamo Zagreb on November 6, 2012, Rabiot made his UEFA Champions League debut. In January of the following year, he was loaned to fellow league team Toulouse. On March 9, 2013, Rabiot scored his first goal as a professional, the game’s lone goal at Brest, from 25 yards out.

Returning to PSG, Rabiot helped the team win consecutive domestic league titles from 2013 to 2015 with 46 appearances and six goals combined, but he appeared to be leaving the team as his mother Véronique served as his main advisor during negotiations for a better contract. He began the 2015–16 season by receiving two yellow cards in the first 29 minutes of the season opener against Lille (which the team ultimately won 1-0 on the road).

The £15m Deal Details

With Juventus, Manchester United has agreed to pay an initial £15 million for the midfielder from France, Adrien Rabiot on a summer window.

The 27-year-personal old’s terms are still being discussed, and while Juventus is willing to sell him, a transaction must first have the consent of both his agency and mother, Veronique.

Manchester United appear to have taken a step closer to finalizing a deal as it is believed that director John Murtough met with Rabiot’s mother, Veronique and agent before the weekend after traveling to Turin.

The Guardian has reported that the Red Devils and Juventus have agreed to a first-round £15 million fee, even though a salary is still being discussed behind closed doors.

Due to the fact that the central midfielder has reached the final year of his £175,000 per week deal, the Italian powerhouses are willing to allow him to exit before the September 1 transfer deadline.

Leandro Paredes, a star for Paris Saint-Germain, has been prioritized by Juventus, and the two parties have already reached an agreement on personal terms. However, the Argentine is reportedly waiting to complete the transfer until Rabiot has left the Allianz Stadium.

When it became apparent that Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona was not interested in moving to Old Trafford, Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag decided to make a move for Rabiot.

Jones thinks Juventus are eager to get rid of Rabiot, which increases Manchester United’s chances of closing the deal.

The Frenchman is no longer part of Massimiliano Allegri’s plans for Juventus, according to the transfer insider.

Following the humiliating loss at Brentford, Ten Hag made a point of stressing that “it is evident we need players,” and he is looking for newcomers.

Gary Neville, a former player for Manchester United, said his former team is “struggling severely” in response to the most recent defeat, but Rabiot might be the key to lifting the Red Devils off the ground.

But, the Red Devils agreed to a £15m deal with Juventus last week before talks with the 27-year-old and his mother, Veronica, his agent, were concluded.

Rabiot expected a higher offer from United, who were looking for an “elite” midfielder in the summer transfer window.

Manchester Evening News mentioned that the deal failed. Rabiot has one year left on his contract with Juventus and will likely receive a higher salary as a free agent in 2023.

David Ornstein of The Athletic reports that the deal could be extended, but that is unlikely, and United has turned its attention to other targets.

He also claims “live talks” about other options, including Real Madrid’s Casemiro.

United have added Tyrell Malasia, Christian Eriksen, and Lisandro Martinez to their squad, but they need more.

In the 21/22 season, they finished sixth with the fewest points in their history, and six first-team players left the club when their contracts expired.

United denied reports at the weekend that they would consider terminating the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s contract if his attitude did not improve.
