Manchester United finally pulled out Adrien Rabiot Deal At Last Minute To Pursue Casemiro And Dejong

After an internal debate within the organization, Manchester United abruptly backed out of the agreement to purchase Adrien Rabiot.

Casemiro of Real Madrid and Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona were both reached by #MUFC representatives who traveled to Spain today, and the team is sure that it will be able to sign both players before the deadline. Erik ten Hag’s first priority is still to sign two top-tier midfielders by the end of this month.

Rabiot’s mother and agent, Veronique, wanted him to be paid more than many of the club’s top earners, such as Bruno Fernandes, who makes about £240,000 per week. United and Juventus had reached an initial £15 million agreement for a fee for Rabiot, but the 27-year-old player’s mother and agent wanted him to be paid more than those individuals. This is due to the Frenchman’s upcoming summer free agent status.

Frenkie De Jong Admits He Is Now Ready To Agree To Join Manchester United After FC Barcelona Treatment [Forbes]

Following FC Barcelona’s treatment of him in recent weeks, Frenkie de Jong has acknowledged that he may be prepared to join Manchester United.

The 25-year-transfer old’s between the two clubs was agreed upon in July for €85 million ($87 million), but De Jong declined to make the jump, citing the absence of Champions League games at United and his desire to flourish at Camp Nou under Xavi Hernandez as his main reasons.

De Jong’s stubbornness may have been prompted by a disagreement over deferred pay, according to other reports. The Dutchman is said to have been increasingly interested in moving to Old Trafford as a result of Barcelona’s handling of the situation.
