Juventus Meet Agent of Midfielder on Expiring Contract

The Juventus brass had a meeting with Veronique Rabiot, the mother and agent of Adrien, to start discussing an extension more concretely. He’s out of contract at the end of the season. Despite his lofty demands, the Bianconeri will try to keep ahold of him, Calciomercato informs.

The parties are distant on the numbers, and the Premier League giants could easily satisfy his requests. But the Old Lady won’t go out without a fight. They’ll have a few more months to negotiate because the Frenchman doesn’t want to transfer in January.

Juventus plan to offer €7/7.5M per year plus add-ons, and Rabiot would continue having the pivotal role he has had in recent months. On the other hand, his representative is pursuing a larger contract since it could be the last of his career. She aims for wages in the ballpark of €10M annually and a hefty signing bonus.

According to TuttoSport, Juventus are willing to make a sacrifice to keep the star midfielder. He’s already on par with Dusan Vlahovic on their payroll. Only Paul Pogba earns more. Massimiliano Allegri is a major proponent of the agreement. However, the coach is on shaky ground following the embarrassing loss versus Napoli.

Our Take on Juventus and Rabiot

The Old Lady might have a better chance than previously thought, and, conversely, he wouldn’t be as essential in another team. His request might exceed their unofficial cap, but they’ll likely have two big contracts, Angel Di Maria and Leandro Paredes, come off the books in the summer. That might allow them to make an effort to keep the linchpin.
