Manchester United have been ripped apart in their pursuit of Adrien Rabiot by ex-player Lou Macari, live on their official TV channel.
Rabiot is currently being chased by Manchester United amid their need to bolster their midfield. There have been negotiations with his current club, Juventus, as well as his mother and agent, Veronique.
Interest in the French international has caused a mixed reaction Manchester United ventilators On the one hand, he is an experienced player who has represented prestigious clubs and a powerful national team.
On the other hand, he has not made much progress in three seasons at Juventus. Concerns have also been raised about his attitude and the influence of his controversial mother on his career.
Now Man Utd have been left red-faced after their ex-player Macari entered live MUTV – his own channel – who hasn’t heard of Rabiot and doesn’t feel he has any attributes to improve Erik ten Hag’s side.
“What’s his name? I’ve never heard of him because I don’t think I should have heard of him,” said Macari.
“You and I checked his record before he came to this program. He played 32 games last season, how many goals did he score?
“He played in the equivalent of his FA Cup in this country. How many goals did he get?”
The answer to both questions was zero, as was the case with their participation in the Champions League. When the host raised the idea that Rabiot could be another type of player with other qualities, Macari replied: “I don’t see them. Qualities you can see in black and white; you can see people scoring goals, or in this case, not scoring goals.
“Football clubs spend millions and millions of pounds putting scouts all over Europe to keep an eye on every player.
“So if you were a Manchester United scout and you asked about someone at any club, it would give you a real breakdown of them. Millions are spent. Nobody has made a move for this guy. Why?”

Links with Ligue 1 side Monaco were brought up by the presenter before Macari laughed it off.
“Monaco is good for throwing your money away, throwing your money in the bank in Monaco. Going there on holiday is lovely,” he joked.
Is Adrien Rabiot really the answer to Manchester United’s midfield woes?
With reports emerging that a fee has been agreed with Juventus for the Frenchman, is Adrien Rabiot really the answer to Manchester United’s midfield woes?
“But what has the football team ever done? So being interested in him means nothing. Why are the rest of the clubs in this country, which have done well in the transfer market, why are they not interested in him? Why aren’t they Man City or Liverpool?
“You always need a good player. And if that guy is a good player, your Liverpool, your Man City, even Tottenham now, their owner is spending a lot of money, Arsenal are spending money to get back into contention .
“No, I just have a bad feeling about the guy.”
However, things seem to be progressing for Rabiot to become a Man Utd player. If he does, he’ll have some people to prove him wrong.
