Adrien Rabiot open to join Manchester United as he seeks Juventus exit

According to a report from Italian publication Corriere di Torino (h/t Metro), Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot is open to joining Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Rabiot was linked with a move to Manchester United last summer when his contract with former club PSG was on the verge of expiry. However, the Frenchman opted to move to Juventus on a free transfer.

But the move hasn’t worked out all too well for Rabiot. The 25-year-old has started just 11 Serie A matches this term and has featured in just 24 matches in all competitions. He hasn’t been able to contribute with a single goal or assist so far.

Our midfield unit was a major problem not so long ago, but it has been rejuvenated since January. Fred has hit top form, Scott McTominay is proving himself to be a vital player, while Nemanja Matic has recovered his best form as well.

Bruno Fernandes has been a huge catalyst to this development, but with doubts remaining over the future of Pogba, another addition to the midfield wouldn’t be the worst idea.

Juventus themselves are interested in securing the services of Pogba. They are willing to offer Rabiot, who is valued at €30m, as a part of the deal to sign his compatriot. (h/t Metro)

Rabiot, despite his talents, is another troublemaker. Moreover, the 25-year-old hasn’t been playing regularly for over a year now. So United would be better off without taking a punt on the Frenchman.
