£34m star Man Utd agreed to sign set to snub Red Devils for a second time

Adrien Rabiot, a midfield player for Juventus, is reportedly going to be unavailable to Manchester United for a second time as a result of their inability to advance to the Champions League.

As his time in Turin draws to a conclusion, Rabiot is being linked to a third summer transfer window move—this time to Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old is expected to become a free agent next month, which has sparked new rumours about a possible transfer to the United States.

After a failed chase, United reportedly reached an agreement with Juventus in 2022 to sign Rabiot as a backup to Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong.

However, the club failed to shake on personal terms with his agent and mother, Veronique, and later signed Casemiro from Real Madrid for £70million.

When United’s attempt to acquire Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount for £60 million appeared to be in jeopardy the previous summer, Rabiot was once more connected to the team.
However, Rabiot signed a one-year contract extension at Allianz Stadium, and Mount finalised his switch.
But as he gets closer to free agency and it seems certain that United will make midfield changes this summer, his future is in doubt once more.
This season, the France international made 35 appearances and lead the team multiple times, playing a significant role under Massimiliano Allegri.
But if their interest in Rabiot becomes real, the Red Devils’ worst-ever Premier League season appears to have cost them.
The Juventus midfielder wants to play in the Champions League next season, something that his present club can provide but United cannot, according to L’Equipe.
Erik ten Hag’s team finished in a record-low eighth position in the Premier League, ensuring they would not play in Europe. The FA Cup victory over Manchester City on Saturday secured a place in the Europa League, but Rabiot may not be persuaded.
The news that Thiago Motta will soon join Juventus as Allegri’s replacement will also increase Rabiot’s likelihood of remaining put.
Because of his close friendship with Motta, the £34 million star may decide to pledge his future to her this summer.
The cost of United’s potential midfield addition will depend on if Casemiro departs as anticipated in the face of Saudi Arabia’s intense interest. The 32-year-old midfielder was a late addition to Ten Hag’s FA Cup final-winning team after a miserable second season in England.
A younger, more athletic midfield partner for 19-year-old phenom Kobbie Mainoo must be near the top of transfer ambitions, even if Casemiro stays at United.
