What is the latest news related to Rabiot?

Manchester United have moved a step closer to signing Rabiot after agreeing an initial fee of £15m with Juventus.

Red Devils manager John Murtough celebrated one positive meeting with the 27-year-old’s agent and mother Veronique after traveling to Turin last week.

Further talks were due to take place today, with Rabiot’s wage demands remaining the key obstacle to a deal.

Having entered the final 12 months of his £175,000-a-week contract, Juventus are open to Rabiot moving on to pastures new.

What has Dean Jones said about Rabiot?

When asked if Manchester United are chasing De Jong as well as Rabiot, Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “I definitely think it still is. They would both love it.

“Rabiot’s deal should become clearer on Wednesday. There is no reason why this deal should be extended beyond this point if Rabiot wants to join.”

Who have Manchester United signed so far?

Tyrell Malacia became the first signing of the Hag ten era when he completed a £14.7m switch from Eredivisie side Feyenoord.

Creative midfielder Christian Eriksen headed to Old Trafford as a free agent after his contract with Brentford expired.

Argentina international Lisandro Martinez became Manchester United’s latest signing when he followed ten Hag from Ajax for £56.7m.

But back-to-back defeats at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford have shown ten Hag, who was appointed Red Devils boss earlier in the campaign, needs more reinforcements ahead of the September 1 cut-off.
