Man United ready to sign “incredible” Juventus Midfield maestro as major Scott Mctominay upgrade on free transfer this summer

Scott McTominay is a player who often splits the opinion of the Manchester United fan base, with some unable to look past his flaws.

But there’s no doubting that in the last 12 months, especially in the last third, he’s evolved into a clutch player.

This week at Euro 2024, the Scotland international scored the first goal against Switzerland, demonstrating his ability to be a threat in the box once more.

Nevertheless, despite his valiant efforts on behalf of Steve Clarke’s team, United may try to upgrade the number 39 in midfield this summer.

Man Utd desires more midfield players. TuttoSport, an Italian publication, has reported that Adrien Rabiot might try to get a transfer to Old Trafford.

The article states that as contract talks at Juventus come to an impasse, “he is waiting for Manchester United.”

Back in May, there were plenty of reports suggesting that the Red Devils could look to make a move for the Frenchman this summer.

Now that his future is unclear, INEOS may look to sign the midfielder on a free deal, having previously put £148k-per-week aside for his salary.

Why Rabiot would be an upgrade on McTominay
Over the last two seasons in particular, Rabiot has been a consistent performer at the heart of the Juve midfield.

During the most recent campaign, the number 25 became a crucial player for Massimiliano Allegri, helping his side finish third in Serie A and win the Coppa Italia.

Across the season, Rabiot featured 30 times from the off, boasting an average of 86 minutes per game, which proves he was a key player that can be relied upon.

Despite not beating his goal tally of eight from the 2022/23 campaign, the left-footed star still managed to have an impact in attacking zones, scoring five goals and providing three assists, which made him Juve’s third-highest scorer in the league.

The 29-year-old was often deployed as the left-sided central midfielder in a 5-3-2 system, where he had been given the role of providing energy at both ends of the field, which is why he’s been described as a “monster” by journalist Robin Bairner.
