The France international is into the last year of his contract with the Turin club and has become a strong option for Erik ten Hag as he looks to add much needed quality into his squad after Sunday’s horror show against Brighton.
🚨 EXCL: Man Utd United working on deal to sign Adrien Rabiot from Juventus. #MUFC must decide if they proceed irrespective of ongoing De Jong pursuit or await outcome of that before deciding. 27yo France midfielder has 1yr on #Juve contract @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/kUM6VeImK7— David Ornstein (@David_Ornstein) August 8, 2022
In the report, it states that United will have to make a decision on whether to conclude the deal for Rabiot irrespective of their ongoing pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong or wait to see how the De Jong saga will end before making a decision on Rabiot.
United will also have to discuss personal terms with the former Paris Saint Germain star.
Since the news broke, videos of Rabiot’s best bits have started to circulate online, with United fans eager to see what the Frenchman can bring to their side.
Rabiot is a player who is comfortable on the ball and possesses great dribbling skills that allows him to escape from tight spaces. Something that the current crop of United midfielder struggle with.
Fans were quick to react to the Rabiot's ability on social media.
One fan said: “At the moment, I am taking anyone who is even 10% better than McTominay and Fred. So bring him in.”
Another tweeted: “Adrien Rabiot is better than what we currently have, if the fee is good and Erik ten Hag wants him then let’s go for him.”
And a third fan added: “He’s not a star but is better than mcfred. When the main targets are available ten hag will get them but first, we need to qualify for ucl if we want to attract stars.”
Scott McTominay and Fred were on the end of severe criticism after the pair produced a well below par showing against Brighton on Sunday.
Former United player Paul Scholes slammed the midfield duo after the match.
He said: “With Fred and McTominay, he [Ten Hag] is going to have to play just one of them [going forward] but even one of them is probably too many.
“Fred gives the ball away all the time and McTominay’s trying to run with the ball constantly and then gives it away. Pass it to your best players! It’s not that difficult. It’s criminal on a day like today.”
