After a terrible experience with the PSG’s and the Bayonne France led by Didier Claude Deschamps earlier, finally, the 27-year-old football star is hopeful of being associated with Manchester United. Currently associated with the team Juventus, the player is already ready with an agreement over the fee with the Serie A side. However, the deal hasn’t come to a closure yet but will sooner or later take place.

The agreement seems to be happening between Adrian’s mother and agent Veronique with a reported fee of Euros 15 million – 20 million. Negotiations are underway.

So why does Manchester United want Adrian Rabiot?

They want Adrian Rabiot simply because of one reason, and that is their midfield crisis. Currently the club is facing a shortage in its midfield area and are approaching the player and also the other dutch midfielder, Frenkie De Jong after the player’s former coach Erik ten Hag has taken the reins for Manchester United.

But why has it taken too long for Manchester United to finalize the french player (Adrian Rabiot)?

The primary reason behind such delay is cited the past experience Adrian Rabiot has gone through. First the terrible experience of his grandmother passing away and just after that his father taking a heavenly abode but more terrible than this the player not given the liberty to pay his last rights. So, what, Adrian had to forcefully break the contract and the PSG in return finning him for not traveling to Qatar. This was all explained by Veronique (Adrian’s Manager) to L’Equipe (French Daily newspaper).

And again in 2018, when he was facing persona non grata during the final match at PSG and on top of that making him sit or barred from participating by the then french coach Didier Deschamps.

But understanding the past history of the player, Manchester United in order to gain his trust has to be tactful which was evident when Manchester United team’s former long-time manager, Sir Alex Fergusson suggested, that in order to get Adrian, one needs to speak to his mother, otherwise the Veronique who is his manager will go somewhere else. He said,

“The mothers are always the strong ones in the family, without question. I say always, ‘Get the mother’.”

Rabiot is a fine footballer with great midfield capabilities and grabbing the game by Lapels.
