Manchester United transfer update: Deal for midfielder close as another collapses

Posted by

Updates have been provided on Manchester United’s summer pursuit of two new central midfielders.

Man United fans have been screaming out for midfield reinforcements for some time now. Even at this stage of the transfer window, no one of the desired profile has been recruited.

Erik ten Hag has been desperate to get Frenkie de Jong through the door from Barcelona, but we’re now at August 10th and Man United have been unable to convince the Dutchman.

According to Todo Fichajes, they have now been successful in landing a new midfielder in the shape of Adrien Rabiot, who has been deemed surplus to requirements by Juventus.

However, as per the report, the arrival of the Frenchman will end United’s pursuit of de Jong, with the club accepting that they are not going to be able to get a deal done.

Man United are essentially settling for second best in this instance, but they have to accept that is the reality of playing outside the Champions League, with the club in disarray.

Don’t fear, though, Man United supporters. If worst comes to worst, at least you’ve still got McFred to occupy the midfield positions in the starting XI…
