Manchester United In For Marko Arnautovic and Adrien RabiotGriffochaz
In the wake of Man United’s 2-1 home defeat to Brighton on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, the club are looking into the signing of both Marko Arnautovic and Adrien Rabiot.
Arnautovic, who is best known for his mixed time at West Ham, is currently 33 years of age and plays at Italian side Bolonga.
On Sunday night, Bolonga rejected a £8m bid from Manchester United for the Austrian and seem determined to keep the player despite his dreams of playing for the English club.
It is not yet known whether United will go back in for Marko but a fee of around £10m is rumoured if talks were to continue.
In addition to this, as of this morning, David Ornstein broke the news that Man United are also in for Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

All these rumours lie on the future of Frenkie De Jong who still wants to stay at Barcelona despite Chelsea now showing interest.
Similarly to De Jong, Rabiot is reluctant to join Man United based off their lack of UCL football but is said to still be considering the move due to the club’s stature.
