Barcelona

Manchester United ‘working on’ Adrien Rabiot deal as Frenkie de Jong pursuit continues in transfer window


Manchester United are reportedly “working on a deal” to sign midfielder Adrien Rabiot from Juventus.

Rabiot, 27, is entering the final 12 months of his contract with Juve and, according to the Athletic, is a “leading option” to bolster United’s midfield.

United are also continuing their prolonged efforts to sign Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

It is reported they must now decide whether to try to secure Rabiot’s signature soon or wait and see how things develop with De Jong before making a decision.

The news comes shortly after it was revealed United are pursuing Bologna forward Marko Arnautovic.

Rabiot featured for Juventus as a substitute in their final pre-season game against Atletico Madrid.

The France international started his career at Paris Saint-Germain before joining Juventus in 2019.

United’s summer window has so far seen them sign Tyrell Malacia, Christian Eriksen and Lisandro Martinez.

However, new manager Erik ten Hag admitted he has a “hell of a job” ahead after an opening-day loss to Brighton in the Premier League.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta said at the weekend that De Jong remains keen to stay at the club despite salary issues.

“Frenkie is our player and we want him to stay at Barcelona, he wants to stay too”, stated Laporta.

“With him and his team-mates, we have a very powerful midfield. He has offers, but we want him to stay.”

De Jong is one of the highest earners at Barca and may need to accept a pay cut to stay.
