Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot looks to have made his choice on his next move.
According to Calciomercato, Rabiot and his mother have accepted Juventus’ proposal of €7m per-year plus bonuses.
SoccerLink reported yesterday that Rabiot was subject to an €8m per-year offer, plus a further €10m signing on fee from Manchester United to move to Old Trafford.
But now it seems Rabiot has chosen a move to Turin, another blow for United in this transfer window. At 24, Rabiot could have been a useful signing on a free to replace the outgoing Ander Herrera, but the Reds now look to have missed out.
It is not difficult to see why Rabiot may have been drawn to Juventus over a move to United; contending for the Champions League and playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
United are not the most attractive of prospects at the moment, despite still being the biggest club in the world. A scatter-gun transfer approach from Ed Woodward and co has left a weak and unbalanced United squad, that still requires significant investment to be able to compete.
Rabiot, however, is widely known as a troublemaker and it may be a blessing in disguise for the Reds to miss out on his signature. United must seek alternatives and act quickly to secure transfers before pre-season starts in just a couple weeks time.
