MANCHESTER UNITED are hoping to seal the deal for Adrien Rabiot by sending the club’s football director to personally negotiate in Turin.

The Red Devils are on the brink of signing Rabiot, 27, but his huge wage demands are delaying the transfer.

The midfielder – and his agent mother – are reportedly asking for a whopping £8.5m a year contract to get the deal done.

And United chief John Murtough has jetted out to Italy in an attempt to finally land the Juventus midfielder.

The Mirror report that Rabiot’s mother, Veronique, has made it clear she will only deal with Murtough.

She is believed to be a tough negotiator and is reported to be making demands about Champions League football.
