Man Utd chief Murtough returns from Turin after Rabiot meeting

Manchester United chief John Murtough has returned from Turin after talks over Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

United are hoping to sign Rabiot, 27, from Juventus in a £15million transfer.

Murtough even flew out to Turin to speak with the player's mother, who happens to be his agent.

Rabiot and mother and agent Veronique are holding out for £8.4m-per-year to leave Juve for United, says The Sun.

Should a move fail to materialise, the player could stay at Juve and see out the final year of his contract before commanding a high wage as a free agent next summer.

Murtough was pictured leaving Turin on Friday and the outcome of the talks over Rabiot are yet to be revealed.
