Enter Veronique Rabiot. Rabiot's biological mother and agent. The Daily Star reports that Veronique took charge of her son's career in 2007. The pair has been embroiled in multiple controversies that many of United's fans feel could cause harm to Ten Hag's dressing room.

Veronique was first involved in a tussle with Paris Saint-Germain ownership in 2012 when she wanted to attend a mid-season tour. Rabiot was then loaned to Toulouse, where Veronique insisted that she wanted to attend all the training sessions.

The two had constant troubles with PSG that even led to the omission of Rabiot's name from the Champions League squad. PSG were not interested in offering Rabiot a new contract, and English side Tottenham Hotspurs moved in to sign him.

Veronique's demands saw Spurs pull out of the deal before he eventually joined Juventus in 2019. But he only joined the Old Lady after he was relegated to PSG reserve team.

In between, they had a row with the French national team after Rabiot was only called to the side after N'Golo Kante had suffered an injury. He then pulled out of France's standby list for the FIFA World Cup in 2018.

The mother to the now 27-year-old also appeared to have a confrontation with Kylian Mbappe's father, Wilfried Mbappe, after the junior Mbappe missed a crucial penalty in France's shock exit at the Euro 2020. She is understood to have told Mbappe's father,

I hope you are going to confront your son. A player of his quality should not be hitting penalties like that.

It remains to be seen whether Veronique's tussles will continue during her son's tenure in Manchester should they agree to move. But from past experiences, she has proved to be a ticking time bomb that worries United faithful
