Adrien Rabiot 'makes Man Utd contract decision' as Erik ten Hag plots free transfer

Adrien Rabiot is set to reject a move to Manchester United in order to sign a new contract at Juventus, according to reports.

United had been linked with a move for Rabiot on a free transfer this summer, but his decision is set to land another blow to Erik ten Hag's attempts to rebuild his squad this summer.

It was reported by talkSPORT on Sunday that the Manchester club retained interest in the 28-year-old after deciding against signing him last summer.

The France midfielder impressed at the World Cup in Qatar last year, and was described as 'extraordinary' by France and Juve legend David Trezeguet after the final defeat to Argentina.


He had been free to talk to other clubs having entered the final six months of his contract with the Italian club.


And given Juventus' failure to qualify for next season's Champions League, a number of their key players are expected to be of high interest to other clubs.

United were one of those clubs, having failed to complete a deal for Chelsea star Mason Mount due to the Blues' price demands.


But they are set to receive yet another transfer blow.

Rabiot 'set to snub Man Utd move'

According to Correire dello Sport (via UtdXclusive), Rabiot has agreed to sign a new one-year contract with Juventus that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2024.

If the contract is signed, it means United will once again have to focus on other targets.


According to reports, they are keen on signing midfielder Moises Caicedo from Brighton, but Chelsea are also interested and the Seagulls' asking price is said to be around £80 million.

United only have £100 million to spend over the transfer window, as per The Athletic, but manager Ten Hag is willing to allow several players to leave this summer in order to raise extra funds.

Those players include club captain Harry Maguire and midfielder Scott McTominay, the Daily Mirror claim, with the plan aiming to raise a further £100 million so that the Dutchman can target signings in attack, midfield and defence.
