MANCHESTER UNITED are hoping to seal the deal for Adrien Rabiot by sending the club’s football director to personally negotiate in Turin.

The Red Devils are on the brink of signing Rabiot, 27, but his huge wage demands are delaying the transfer.

Adrien Rabiot – and his agent mother – are reportedly asking for a whopping £8.5m a year contract to get the deal done.

And United chief John Murtough has jetted out to Italy in an attempt to finally land the Juventus midfielder.

The Mirror report that Rabiot’s mother, Veronique, has made it clear she will only deal with Murtough.

She is believed to be a tough negotiator and is reported to be making demands about Champions League football.

Erik ten Hag’s boys will be battling it out in the Europa League this term.

The new boss has moved for the out-of-favour Frenchman to beef up a midfield that has often faced criticism.

What appeared to be a straightforward deal now appears to have a spanner in the works.

The two clubs are believed to have agreed terms, with the Old Lady were now only “spectators” in the rest of the discussion.

But Adrien Rabiot’s personal terms now apparently risk slowing down the deal as Old Traffod bosses desperately push for reinforcements following the side’s poor showing against Brighton.

Meanwhile, superstar Cristiano Ronaldo looks ready for action ahead of Saturday’s clash with Brentford.
