Milan Test the Waters for Rabiot During Long Impasse

Milan have inquired about Adrien Rabiot, who’s leaving Juventus hanging after receiving a formal proposal to prolong his expiring contract. The Rossoneri might not offer much more salary-wise but could tender a longer deal, Corriere dello Sport informs (via Goal).

The Old Lady has tabled a two-year pact with an option, confirming his present €7M salary. The midfield would rather get a slight pay bump to €8M annually. He hasn’t given a firm answer to his team. Even though they’d like to get one soon, he might not decide before the Euro as previously believed.

Milan have touched base with the Rabiot camp in recent days. Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also keen. He’ll continue to weigh his options.

The Rossoneri have been focusing primarily on Youssuf Fofana to bolster their midfield. He’s set to depart this summer. Monaco ask for €20/25M. Como coach Cesc Fabregas stated in a recent interview that he caught wind that the 25-year-old would indeed transfer to San Siro this summer.

Our Take on Milan and Rabiot

Nothing wrong with kicking the tires on a free agent and messing with a rival, but it’d be quite surprising if they made an offer at those numbers, also because they usually prefer signing younger players. They have been reluctant to hand lofty wages to their own stars. Bringing in someone with a very rich contract would lead to an awkward and potentially dangerous dynamic inside the locker room.
