The Bianconeri have reportedly agreed a transfer fee with Manchester United worth €20m plus bonuses, a tidy sum considering his contract only runs to June 2023 and he was picked up as a free agent from PSG in 2019.
However, the move depended on Manchester United agreeing personal terms with Rabiot’s mother and agent Veronique.
According to talkSPORT, would’ve been a problem if Monaco qualified for the Champions League, because Rabiot would be inclined to lean towards them instead.
Monaco had been leading in Eindhoven this evening until a late PSV equaliser, and it ended 3-2 for the Dutch side in extra time, 4-3 on aggregate.
As for Juve, they need to sell Rabiot before they can secure Leandro Paredes from Paris Saint-Germain, and Monaco probably wouldn’t have been able to match that €20m asking price.
