Manchester United eye Real Betis star as Adrien Rabiot alternative

Real Betis star Guido Rodriguez is the latest midfielder to be linked with a summer move to Manchester United.

According to Spanish newspaper AS, Argentina international Rodriguez has been identified as an alternative to Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, although the former is a much better tackler in the middle of the pitch.

Meanwhile, The Guardian claim there is a £15m agreement in place with Juventus for Rabiot.

The 28-year-old, who began his professional career at River Plate, is a defensive midfielder who has 24 international caps for Argentina.

It is suggested that United have already contacted Betis, who would seek around €20m for Rodriguez as he is under contract until 2024, so that tells me we are actively pursuing several midfielders at the tail end of the transfer window.

It’s far from ideal but it’s always likely to happen when you spend over 10-weeks chasing someone like Frenkie de Jong. Hopefully that gets sorted soon and the Netherlands star doesn’t end up at Chelsea.

Rodriguez doesn’t have the same profile as Rabiot, although he would come with far less baggage.
