Adrien Rabiot’s mother and agent, Veronique, wants to negotiate with Manchester United herself and refuses to talk to anyone except the director football John Murtaugh on a move to Old Trafford.

United agreed with Juventus to sign the French midfielder, but personal terms have yet to be agreed.

27-year-old Rabiot is very keen to move to England, but he previously wanted to join a club in Champions League and will have to be persuaded to join United instead.

United often conducts its transfer business through intermediaries, which allows representatives to set terms from afar and not get close to the negotiations themselves.

But the Telegraph says Veronique wants full control of the negotiations and wants to discuss the salary and contract for her son without outside noise.

Although Richard Arnold was part of United’s negotiating team for Frankie de Jong, it is claimed Veronique will only speak to Mert as he makes the decisions at Old Trafford.

This is likely to be Rabiot’s last major contract of his career and his mother is keen to secure terms that reflect that.

Juventus want between £12m and £14m for the midfielder despite being out of contract in 12 months.

United’s move for the France international reflects the club’s frustration at failing to secure a deal for De Jong.

Barcelona accepted a fee of around £63m almost six weeks ago, but the Dutchman wants to stay at Camp Nou.
