As the transfer market draws closer to the end with just three weeks left for the market to be closed, Manchester United are still busy looking for more players to add to their squad to reinforce the squad for the task ahead. With just three players signed under the new coach and new director, Erik Ten Hag is still hopeful of landing at least two more players on his team to balance the squad and create more room for competition.
Manchester United have been in touch with Barcelona midfielder Frankie de Jong for a couple of weeks now, with the deal not likely to be sealed between the two teams as the Dutch player has confirmed his desire to stay in the Spanish LaLiga even at a pay cut as the Barcelona suffers great financial crisis though the Netherland star has been a great player under Manchester United coach when at Ajax but failed to linkup with the coach at Man United.
With the deal not sure to come through, Manchester United has found another alternative in Juventus star Adrien Rabiot and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Rabiot has enjoyed a great spell at Juventus after joining the Serie A giant as a free agent from PSG in 2019 after spending all this career in the French capital since 2012 when He made his first senior team appearance.
Manchester United has reached an agreement with the 27-year-old France international as a deal could be sealed anytime soon with personal terms yet to be reached but the French player has opened up about joining the Red Devils as He wishes to find a new challenge in another League and lifting both Serie A and French League 1 competition much time.
As ManUtd has been the major destination for the French star, the Red is also looking forward to securing the signing of Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. The England giant looking to meet the €68million (£57.5m) price tag on the Serbia international as the player shows great quality and perfect replacement for Paul Pogba who joined Juventus as a free agent.
if these two transfers are completed, Ten hags will have more options in the mid-field other than Fred and McTominay, with the two combinations not yielding much result for the team. A combination of Fernandes, Eriksen, and either Adrien Rabiot or Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, will give Eriksen the free opportunity to control the center while paying less attention to the marking of players which McTominay or Fred has failed to achieve during their last Premier League action which resulted in the first Home defeat.
