    I'd take him to be honest. He may be a bit of a prick but he'd be joining to play well and get into the France team, be a regular etc; For a free transfer you have to feel he's worth a punt.

    His chance getting back to France national team is zero. He is perfect for Man Utd though, a match in heaven.

    Financially and on the pitch, it makes perfect sense.

    Can’t comment on his attitude because I don’t know him!

    Okay, I think it’s a bit bizarre that we’re none of the wiser as to where he’s going.

    Is he a DM or a b2b midfielder?

    I think it will all be rainbows and unicorns if we sign him for around 3 months, until someone forgets his B'day cake. It will all be downhill after that. Half arsed performances, and endless leaks to the press about how badly he's been treated.

    He refused to be on the waiting/nomination list for the world cup if France would have an injured player. Think Deschamps said he wouldnt play for him as long as he is the manager

    He's leaving PSG because he's used as a dm and sees himself as a b2b midfielder.

    You will have next to zero competition for his signature. Only Man Utd can meet his salary and signing on requirements

    He probably turned down offers from Barcelona Real Madrid Bayern Juventus, and save himself for Man Utd.

    *Added*

    He won't join Arsenal. We can't afford him. He said it himself club like spurs is below his level and we(5th or 6th) are even worse than spurs (3rd place). His mom is probably calling Ed everyday about how much his son love man Utd and the weather of the city so no worry.

    I’d piss myself if he ended up at Arsenal now.

    Perfect candidate to be sold to china for big money in the future, I am sure Chelsea would be on him if they weren't banned.

    Deschamps didn't say that, the contrary in fact, but noone expects the situation to change short term.

    Good player but the last thing we need right now is a spoiled momma boy. The moment requires real men more than ever.

    Refuses to go to Tottenham this winter because it's "beneath his level", refuses to play DM because he doesn't like the position, refuses to be backup player for FRANCE in the WC because he considers that Deschamps made a mistake by not picking him in the main group, Refuses to pick up his phone when Deschamps called to get an explaination, his mom refused that he'd see the president of the French Football Federation without her being present... just a taste of Rabiot.

    He's not Cantona prick, he's spoiled brat prick.

    We have a thread about players being charlatans and then people in here wanting this guy signed. We don’t need any more arseholes in the team.

    Actually we have way too many nice guys. A bit of arrogance and attitude could go a long way in our team. Keane was a prick, Ruud was a prick, Cantona etc.

    And people complain about Pogba's inconsistency but, want us to sign Rabiot, Tielemans, Ruben Neves or N'Dombele.

    Yeah exactly. Other exemple, he was subbed in in a game with France 6 months before the world cup (so basically when you play for your spot in the squad), and had a terrible performance. He said that it was because it was too cold oustide and was afraid to get injured...

    HARDLY a Keane or Eric move...



    He's not very good at holding the ball even if he can do it, is favourite thing it to rush forward (he does it pretty well but often screws up the pass after that). Very very poor long passer, ok with short passes but he almost never uses his right foot.

    Typical exemple of player that could be really good if he played to his strengths but he just doesn't feel like it and has his own way of seeing how he should play. When he was at PSG, Emery wanted to use him as a defensive midfielder (he has the physical ability to do it) but instead he had his mother/agent lobby so the club recruits a real DM so he doesn't have to do it. It's one of the reasons why he didn't extend his contract, because he didn't want to play as a DM and wanted garantees he woudln't have to do it.

    Bit of a dilemma this one. He's obviously a very good player, and would be a great addition. His attitude problems though means we should technically stay well clear of him, but considering he's on a free transfer and we need to spend money in other areas, then it seems to good to turn down.

    Saying that, he knows he will be leaving on a free transfer therefore it's likely him and his agent will demand around £300k a week.

    Pretty much this, steer well clear unless we want more pampered millionaires moping around on the field because he doesnt like the shade of red used on some advertising boardings. Or some other vague transgression he dreamed up which caused him to throw his toys out of the pram.

    Pretend inferiority and encourage his arrogance.
    Woody has pissed me off so much I suggest we sign rabiot and iccardi so he has to deal with rabiots mum and wanda
    on a serious note though wasnt rabiot on city's books as a kid ... wonder if that could be a possibility for him as peps holding midfielders still get quite a bit of freedom to play
