Manchester United’s summer recruitment strategy is all about getting as much bang for each buck spent, which is why the signing of Daniel James and the impending signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been prudently negotiated prior to pen meeting paper.

Ander Herrera, 29, whose qualities much lauded by the United faithful, spent a considerable period of his Red Devil career on the sidelines, due to injury. Whether that was down to rotten luck or being injury-prone is up for the debate but in my opinion Ander Herrera who shown in previous clubs Athletic Bilbao and Real Zaragoza respectively, suited a more attacking position than the robust one he found himself playing in the last three years he served at United.
Conversely, Rabiot would thrive in this role as he has favoured it throughout his career so far, with his standout performance coming against Barcelona in the 2016/17 season in which the French outfit destroyed the Catalonians 4-0 in the first leg. Rabiot displayed all those qualities with a ranged performance breaking the lines of Barcelona’s press with his strong dribbling and technical ability earning him a Man of the Match award.
His average of two goals a season doesn’t show the whole story when it comes down to his overall contributions on the pitch. So, as his potential departure from the French capital looms, his less than amicable farewell doesn’t bode well for his reputation. However, Adrien Rabiot can hopefully start a new prosperous chapter in this young yet enigmatic player’s diary titled, “The Theatre of Dreams”.
