Man Utd fans all saying the same thing as old picture of transfer target Adrien Rabiot in Man City kit as kid emerges


JUVENTUS midfielder Adrien Rabiot is reportedly on the verge of joining Manchester United.

But some United fans are unhappy with the potential addition after an old picture of the Frenchman emerged on social media.

The snap shows a young Rabiot posing before a training session in a MANCHESTER CITY kit.

Rabiot reportedly played for Man City’s academy when he was 13-years-old before signing his first professional deal with PSG a few years later.

Many Man Utd fans are not convinced that signing the 27-year-old would be a good move amid the club’s transfer crisis.

Manchester United have reached an agreement with Juventus regarding the purchase of France midfielder Adrien Rabiot for an initial £15m.

Discussions are at an early stage regarding the player’s personal terms, and while Juventus are happy to sell the 27-year-old a green light will be required from his agent and mother, Veronique, before a deal can proceed.

Rabiot has previously played for Paris Saint-Germain and Toulouse and has 29 international caps. He has won five Ligue 1 and one Serie A title but has a record of uneven discipline, including being fined for lateness.

United’s manager, Erik ten Hag, still retains hope of signing his principal midfield target, Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong, despite mixed signals emanating from the Spanish club regarding a sale of the Netherlands playmaker. The transfer would cost United €65m (£55m) plus €20m in add‑ons, though the structure of the additional payments has not been decided.

One person tweeted: “I literally check twitter every morning to see who United are linked with.

“Fully ready to support city after seeing the Rabiot and Arnautovic links man.”

Another echoed the claims, adding: “If Man U sign Rabiot I might as well support City.”

While opposition fans joked about the fact that the Frenchman used to play for United’s biggest rivals: “Rabiot. Yes, Man City youth product.”

The Red Devils are claimed to have struck a £15million deal with Juventus for the midfielder.

However, personal terms are yet to be agreed.

Man Utd are also in talks to sign former West Ham striker Marko Arnautovic.

A £6.8m bid has been submitted, as confirmed by the player’s agent, but nothing has been agreed.
