Adrien Rabiot has already told Manchester United that he’d like to play in the Premier League with the Red Devils currently in talks with his representatives regarding a transfer.
At the age of 28, Rabiot’s contract with Juventus is nearing its expiration date on July 1, leaving him free to move. As reported by The Athletic, there have been exchanges between United’s top brass and Rabiot, marking a renewed interest after last year’s talks were halted due to Rabiot’s high wage expectations.
Rabiot, who had an inconsistent run over three seasons in Turin, was insistent on equal pay with Manchester United’s highest earners – a condition the club’s management was not willing to meet. However, in a difficult Juventus season, Rabiot managed to record his most fruitful run, scoring 11 goals and contributing six assists in 48 matches across all competitions.
Amidst these fluctuations, the French international has been continually contemplating his future move. Given Juventus’ widely known financial struggles, it’s highly probable that they won’t be able to retain Rabiot with the same salary. Rabiot shared, “I have always stated that I’d like to have a stint in England at some point in my career.”
“I still harbor that aspiration. I am attracted to the Premier League. As of now, I haven’t zeroed in on any specific Premier League team. There’s no decision about any team yet. It’s more of a broader interest. It’s the competitiveness, the level of play that’s prevalent there, which interests me the most. It aligns with my abilities.”
