Man United director, John Murtough, is scheduled to come face-to-face with Adrien Rabiot today.
Manchester United Football Club have endured a disastrous transfer window thus far. Erik ten Hag has been delivered three signings, but in a window where the Reds have lost double figures in terms of first-team players, it’s just not enough.
Midfield is probably the biggest need right now. Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic left, while we watched Scott McTominay and Fred seriously struggle against Brighton last weekend.
Apparently, Adrien Rabiot has been identified as the answer…
It’s Gianluca Di Marzio giving us a further update on Rabiot’s future over the last 24 hours or so.
Apparently, there’s a meeting set for today, with United director, John Murtough, set to connect with the 27-year-old over a possible transfer.
No doubt United’s plan for Rabiot under Ten Hag will be atop of the agenda, while wages and contract length will also be discussed.
This feels like a meeting with a genuine effort to try and push Rabiot to make the move to Old Trafford during this window. You get the impression that the Frenchman is going to have hefty wage demands in order to transfer to a club without Champions League football on the table.
Rabiot alone as a midfield addition would be massively underwhelming. However, if you can sign him, while also bringing in Frenkie de Jong, I’d feel far better about the situation.
I still have my doubts about whether the Dutchman will come in during this window, though it does look like Rabiot will become our fourth summer signing (assuming today’s talks go well).
Hopefully, the deal is signed sealed and delivered before we take on Liverpool in just over a week.
