Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot looks set to sign for Manchester United; United also reportedly remain confident of signing striker Marko Arnautovic from Bologna, Summer transfer window closes at 11pm on September 1
However, personal terms still need to be negotiated with his mother Veronique, who is also his agent.
Rabiot, who joined Juventus as a free agent in the summer of 2019, is in the final year of his contract and has fallen out of favour at the Italian giants.
Juventus are satisfied with letting Rabiot, who has only one year left on his contract, leave the club this summer.
United’s primary midfield transfer target this summer has been Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, but they have been keeping alternative options “warm” after being frustrated in their pursuit of the midfielder.
Rabiot had a brief spell in the academy of Manchester City before turning professional at Paris Saint-Germain in his homeland a decade ago.
He made 227 appearances and won five league titles at PSG before joining Juventus three years ago. Rabiot started 28 matches in Serie A last season.
