Manchester United’s transfer move for Adrien Rabiot could reach £19 million, report The Times.
An initial fee of £15 million has been agreed with Juventus, with an extra £4 million proposed in add-ons.
The deal is now depending on personal terms being agreed. The Telegraph reported football director John Murtough has flown out to hold talks with Rabiot’s agent and mother Veronique Rabiot.
Once negotiations are completed, Rabiot is expected to become Manchester United’s fourth signing of the summer.

Transfer fee for Adrien Rabiot
Manchester United’s spending so far this summer has not been as high as many expected it to be. Tyrell Malacia was signed for £12.5m rising to £14m with add-ons.
Lisandro Martinez was signed for £46 million which could rise to £57 million with add-ons. Christian Eriksen signed for free.
With the move for Adrien Rabiot, United’s total spending would be £73.5 million, rising to £90 million.
There is still further investment required, with United needing to sign a striker, and another midfielder in addition to Adrien Rabiot.
The move to sign Rabiot is not a very exciting one, with the quality the 27-year-old will bring to the squad, very much in question, despite his experience.
The one blessing is that the fee United are paying is not a very expensive one, despite the potential add-ons taking the transfer to £19 million.
