Manchester United has reportedly withdrawn from a move to sign Adrien Rabiot, MySportDab reports.
New Manchester United manager Erik Ten Hag had combed the transfer market in desperation after a shocking Premier League start.
With no headway with the purported Frenkie de Jong move and a shambolic and rickety Man United midfield, Ten Hag is desperately exploring alternatives.
Austrian playmaker and Bologna star Marko Arnautovic have been on the radar of the former Ajax manager.
Ten Hag had to pull out after the fans kicked against the move due to the letters racist records at FC Twente.

The embattled manager had switched to another Serie A midfielder at Juventus for a possibility of fixing Man United midfield.
However, the latest reports from credible sources show that the Old Trafford club has backed out of a possible deal with Rabiot.
Rabiot’s mother and agent Veronique have reportedly demanded huge wage bills as part of his personal terms with the Red Devils.
The duo had demanded a £240,000-a-week wage for Rabiot, causing the £15m deal to be called off by Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Juventus were reportedly ready to let go of the former PSG player, who is now out of favor after the arrival of Paul Pogba.
Rabiot still has a year remaining in his Juventus contract, and the Old Ladies were ready to let him go to avoid losing him as a free agent next year.
The personal terms deadlock means the midfielder still remains at Turin with little or no chance of switching to Old Trafford.
Ma United’s search for more reinforcement for the club continues with other players still in the club’s transfer rather.
