Manchester United’s hopes of signing Adrien Rabiot are now over after the France international decided to sign a new contract with Juventus.
The Frenchman came close to moving to Old Trafford last summer when Juventus accepted an £18m offer from the Red Devils.
But, the Red Devils refused to meet his wage demands and deemed them excessive.

With Rabiot set to become a free agent on July 1st, United made contact with the midfielder over a move to Man United.
After a good campaign in Turin, United were more willing to meet his wage demands as they would no longer be needed to pay a fee for Rabiot.
But, Corriere dello Sport claim Rabiot has reached an agreement over a £6.2m-per-year contract with Juventus that he will sign on Wednesday.
The Frenchman will put pen-to-paper on the new contract on Juventus to end United’s hopes of landing him.
United have had a difficult transfer window so far, with the club submitting three failed bids for Chelsea’s Mason Mount.
While Rabiot was not considered as an alternative to Mount, Erik ten Hag wants to sign two midfielders this summer.
Rabiot would have been a savvy addition because he would have arrived on a free transfer, and United are operating on a tight budget this summer.
