Adrien Rabiot’s move from MANCHESTER UNITED is reportedly being delayed amid his huge salary demands.
The midfielder – and his agent mother – are reportedly demanding a whopping £8.5million a year deal to complete the deal.
United made a move for the disgraced Juventus man to bolster a midfield that has often been criticized.
But what seemed like a no-fuss deal now appears to have a wrench in the works.
So says Get Football News Italy, who say the star’s salary demands are the final sticking point of the deal.
Manchester United and Juventus are believed to have agreed terms, with the report suggesting the old lady was just a ‘spectator’ in the rest of the discussion.
Rabiot’s personal terms now appear to be in danger of slowing the deal as Erik ten Hag is desperate for reinforcements after United’s poor performance against Brighton.
The 27-year-old’s mother is considered a tough negotiator and is said to be making demands for guarantees for Champions League football.
Rabiot was pictured in Juventus training today as the saga of his transfer deal continues.
He is one of a number of players United have been linked with in recent weeks.
