mother Rabiot blocks the deal with United

TURIN – The mother is always the mother, but sometimes she is also something more. In the case of Adrien Rabiot that’s all: mother, counselor, manager, in short, her world. So much to have took his surname, leaving that of his father, who passed away a few years ago. The mother is the permanent center of gravity of French: for any aspect of the child’s professional life, you have to go to Madame Veronique. Manchester United did so, with admirable style: first they asked Juventus to be authorized to speak directly with Rabiot and his entourage to demonstrate interest in the Juventus playerarrived in Turin on a free transfer (after a long negotiation with his mother, of course) in 2019. Adrien was contacted by phone directly by Ten Hag, coach of the Red Devils: informal and serene chat, in which the boy – this is what those close to him say – appreciated what the coach said. Meanwhile United had perfected the agreement with Juventus to detect the French tag: the novelty is that the British were willing to get to 20 million euros plus bonuses, therefore a higher figure than that made known in recent days. All for a footballer due in one year and arrived, in fact, as a free agent: one substantial capital gaina real deal not to be missed by the Juventus management.

Mama Veronique blew the deal

So the table was set, but they had reckoned without the host, it is appropriate to say it: it seemed a formality or a little more, so much so that until recently there was a certain optimism about the success of the operation around the Continassa. Because it is true that United does not dispute the Champions League and at the second in the Premier League they have taken four, but it remains one club with unchanged charm and above all from the substantial wallet: everything was ready for Rabiot, with a four-year at 6 million euros net plus bonuses to go up there, only to be signed. United had also come to Turin, in the figure of general manager Murtough, for look the boy in the eye and snatch the yes. But all of them hadn’t come to terms with Mama Veronique. Which, in essence, blew up the deal and flee the Red Devils, now focused on the try to take Casemiro del Real. Rabiot’s agent wanted a solution in the Champions League for his son, and he would also have asked for Adrien the same salary as Bruno Fernandesmore or less, therefore, about ten million per season, in addition to one rich commission for his services. And after Ferragosto zero contacts and so United, tired of chasing, decided to turn to other goalsleaving Juventus with a disgruntled player in the squad (Rabiot would still like to go to the Premier League) and without the 20 million that would have served finance both operations for Paredesa deal that becomes complicated at this point, both the one for Depay. To get to the Argentine you need one effort of the PSGwhich so far has not opened up to the possibility of a onerous loan with right of redemption.
