Fabrizio Romano: Man Utd now have “big opportunity” to sign “world-class” star on free transfer

Adrien Rabiot is unlikely to sign a new contract at Juventus this summer, amid rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United, journalist Fabrizio Romano has told GIVEMESPORT.

Rabiot’s current deal with the Old Lady has expired, sparking rumours that he could leave the Italian outfit. Manchester United have been touted as a potential destination for the Frenchman, with the north-west club reportedly ‘pushing hard’ to sign the player on a free transfer.

While remaining in northern Italy isn’t completely off the cards, Romano has revealed that the 29-year-old is reluctant to sign a new contract, and is open to a move elsewhere.

Romano: Rabiot ‘Unlikely’ to Sign a New Deal

The midfielder has been at Juventus for five years

Arriving from boyhood club Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, Rabiot has enjoyed a largely successful spell in Turin, making 212 appearances for Juventus, whilst winning Serie A and three domestic cups. The France international – described as “world-class” by Juve and France legend David Trezeguet – featured 35 times for Max Allegri’s side last season, scoring five times as Le Zebre missed out on the title to Inter Milan.

Entering the latter stages of his career, Rabiot may feel it’s the right time to move and secure his final significant contract. Whether Juventus are able to offer the sums of money he’d be looking for remains to be seen, but given United’s extensive resources and thus their ability to grant him his financial demands, a move to Old Trafford could materialise.

When asked about whether Rabiot could end up at Manchester United, Romano told GIVEMESPORT:

“Let’s see if some other clubs will try to enter the race. Because as of now, Rabiot is still not extending his contract at Juventus, so it could be a big opportunity.

“At the moment, I’m not aware of anything advanced or in concrete stages yet, but in general, I think for many clubs, it could be a big possibility, because, as I mentioned at the moment, it looks unlikely for him to stay at Juventus and sign the deal.”
