Adrien Rabiot is leaning toward re-upping his Juventus contract and staying put for at least another season. His mother and agent Veronique had postponed the negotiation in a recent interview, but the parties have been bargaining in the last few weeks, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.
The Bianconeri have offered the star midfielder to do pretty much the same thing as last summer: a one-year renewal with slightly improved wages. He’d earn €8M in 2024/2025 if he accepted. His current deal runs out in June.
Rabiot didn’t leave Juventus despite their exclusion from the European cups, but he’d like to resume playing on the continental stage. The Old Lady is well on its way to achieving that given their good start. He might wait a while longer to see whether their season is headed, but there’s momentum toward his permanence.
The ace has played the second-most minutes in the squad behind Gleison Bremer. He’s not the leader only because he missed one match due to yellow-card accumulation. He has a great relationship with Massimiliano Allegri, as he often stated.
Our Take on Juventus and Rabiot
Even though it wouldn’t be a forward-thinking move, another short-term solution would spare the club the trouble and money of signing a top midfielder. Replacing him properly would be highly expensive considering the level he has reached. If the signature arrived well before the end of the campaign, it might be a big hint about the future of Allegri.
