Following yesterday’s humiliating defeat against Brentford a the Gtech Community Stadium, it looks like Manchester United is already moving in the transfer market in order to sign some new players this week. It was very clear that a lot of the current squad members, do not deserve to wear the Red Devils jersey.

Manchester United’s manager, Erik ten Hag said yesterday after the match that he needs some new players signed in order to elevate the team’s quality and reverse the situation: “We need new players and quality players. We will try and convince them to join us. Only when we stick together we will overcome it”.

By the looks of it, Adrien Rabiot will be the first signing that the 19-times Premier League champions close after the first two league defeats. One of the most reliable transfer sources in football, Fabrizio Romano, reported that Man United will hold new talks over Rabiot in the next 24-48 hours, then the club will work on signing a striker.

Club representatives will have new contacts in the next few days with the French footballer and his mother/agent Veronique and try to reach an agreement with them on personal terms. The Red Devils' board reached an agreement earlier this week with Juventus for the signing of Rabiot, but the midfielder has refused to accept United’s offer.

What’s stopping the deal

As it was reported, Juventus want to sell Rabiot as soon as possible, so they can sign Paris Saint-Germain’s midfielder Leandro Paredes. However, the 27-year-old still hasn’t signed with the Old Trafford side because he only wants to be paid the same he currently owns at Turin, which is around €8 million per year.
