Manchester United Transfer News: Red Devils set to offer €8 million wages to French midfielder Adrien Rabiot as he is set to make a move.
Manchester United are set to hire the services of Adrien Rabiot, who is abut to outlive his contract with PSG at the end of this month. The French midfielder declined to further stay with Les Parisiens after falling out with them.
Thus, Manchester United are reportedly accelerating their pursuit for Rabiot, as according to a report by the Soccer Link, the Red Devils are set to offer €8 million-a-year plus a signing-on bonus of €10 million to the 24-year-old midfielder.
Manchester United are in desperate need to bolster their squad ahead of the next season, as exit of Ander Herrera and possible departure of Paul Pogba amid interests from Real Madrid, makes a huge void in Manchester United’s quad. Hence making Rabiot a required addition.
However, Manchester United are not alone in this pursuit with a lucrative offer, as Italian Champions Juventus are also ready to match the proposal for Rabiot to land him in Turin.
Although, the 24-year-old midfielder was looking for a €10 million-a-year salary, but since both the teams are near to his desired demands, thus, he is ready to negotiate with both the clubs.
On the other hand, it is further reported that Frenchman’s mother and agent Veronique Rabiot will meet PSG’s new sporting director Leonardo and see if there is any chance for her son to continue at Parc des Princes by signing an extension.
That had looked impossible not so long ago, but the footballer’s problems were mainly with Antero Henrique, who has now left the club.
Even though, both Manchester United and Juventus are the forerunners to capture the French midfielder, but Rabiot is speculated to choose Juventus because of their presence in the Champions league next season.
