Adrien Rabiot delighted with Juventus stay after failed summer move to Manchester United

Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot is delighted to have stayed in Italy after a deal with Manchester United collapsed in the summer of 2022. The France international has the opportunity to move to the Premier League.

A deal for the 27-year-old did not materialise. However, it has not proved to be a bad thing as he has been in fine form for the Old Lady in the current campaign.

Speaking to La Gazzetta via transfer guru Fabrizio Romano on Twitter about the collapsed deal with the Old Trafford side in August, Rabiot revealed that staying with the Bianconeri was the “best choice”. And the midfielder is not worried about his future.

“It’s true, I had a chance to try Premier League experience; but staying at Juventus was the best choice.

“I don’t think about future, I’m not in a rush about my contract [expiring in 2023].”

The France international joined Juventus in the summer of 2019 after leaving Paris Saint-Germain. He spent seven years with the Parisians and had a successful spell with the Ligue 1 giants.

In Turin, Rabiot has been an important member of the Bianconeri’s starting lineup. However, the Old Lady have struggled to compete over the last few years.

Massimilano Allegri has been under constant pressure in the current campaign. The Old Lady failed to qualify from the group stages of the Champions League this season and dropped down to the Europa League.

In Serie A, the Italian giants have struggled as well. But Rabiot has been a consistent performer for them in the current campaign. The 27-year-old has been one of their best players during their underwhelming spell.

The midfielder is also set to represent France in the World Cup. He is part of Didier Deschmaps’ squad that will fly to Qatar and take part in the prestigious tournament set to take place in the Middle East.

While Rabiot is a decent player, United had already bolstered their engine room in the recent transfer window with the addition of Christian Eriksen. Thus, some fans felt signing someone like Casemiro for the number six position was the better option.
