Manchester United’s £15m move for Adrien Rabiot ‘is OFF’


Manchester United’s dismal August continued with reports that the club’s pursuit of Adrien Rabiot has collapsed.

The club had chased Rabiot from Juventus following their defeat to Brighton on the opening weekend of the season and had been hopeful of completing a deal for the France international.

However, the player’s excessive wage demands are believed to have got in the way of a deal and the move has collapsed, a number of outlets including the Manchester Evening News and The Athletic reported.

The news leaves United in the lurch over where to move next to provide Erik ten Hag with a much needed new central midfielder.

United had spent the majority of the summer chasing Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, with the club still hopeful of securing a deal for the Dutchman, but had a realisation that the midfield needed bolstering after an alarming opening weekend performance at home to Brighton.
