Transfer News: Manchester United among three sides interested in Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot
Rabiot joined Juventus from PSG in 2019 and has since then gone on to have a mixed time at Turin. In fact, his whole career has been a juxtaposition of the incredible and the ridiculous with the Frenchman being extremely inconsistent throughout his career.
The 27-year-old has played 45 games for the Old Lady this season but has failed to score any goals and provided just two assists across all competitions. Such numbers do not inspire much confidence in the player.
With a contract set to expire in 2023, Juventus are willing to offload the player with the Frenchman not short of options with at least three clubs interested in the player’s signature.
Whilst Rabiot definitely does seem to have the potential to succeed at a big club, his attitude over the years has not been favourable and neither have his performances.
The fact that Manchester United need a new midfielder is no secret. Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba have left the club. This has left the Red Devils with just Donny van de Beek, Scott McTominay and Fred as the midfielders in the club.
Whilst it is evident why Man Utd might choose to sign him considering the fact that he has only one year left on his contract and he would be available at a bargain. The Frenchman can still offer great quality squad depth for Erik ten Hag’s side.
Frenkie de Jong is United’s first-choice midfielder to sign this summer and the Dutchman’s signing will be viewed from a completely different perspective to that of Rabiot. The Barcelona man would instantly become one of the Red Devils’ best players.

The same cannot be said about Rabiot though. If we sign him, it will be a controversial signing at best. We can hope it pays off but it would not be surprising if it doesn’t.
