Manchester United Resume Tracking Juventus Midfielder

Despite some openings along the way, Juventus and Adrien Rabiot seem destined to part ways naturally at the end of his expiring contract. He routinely postponed the extension talks to the end of the season, reiterating his desire to play in the Champions League.

According to L’Equipe (via 90min), Manchester United have resurfaced as a likely landing spot for the Frenchman. They already pursued him in the past. The Bianconeri had greenlighted his departure for a relatively low fee, but the English club didn’t strike a deal on personal terms.

Coach Erik Ten Hag has reportedly reached out to his mother and agent Veronique Rabiot to try facilitating his Bosman arrival at Old Trafford. She had requested €10M per year the last time the Red Devils came forward. He currently earns €7.5M. Juventus are unlikely to offer him more than his current salary.

The Bianconeri are on the verge of securing a top-four finish, but they are about to be deducted some points. Even though the 28-year-old is a pet player of coach Massimiliano Allegri and he’s having his best campaign since moving to Turin, there has been no traction on his contract renewal in recent weeks.

Our Take on Rabiot, Juventus, and Manchester United

Things have been eerily quiet on this front as of late for a few reasons. The team and the player are waiting to see whether they’ll have the chance to play in the top competition before negotiating, as it’s a diriment element. Plus, Old Lady is in the process of hiring a new director. If they do land Cristiano Giuntoli, he might be averse to handing out overly large wages.
