Adrien Rabiot has not ruled out a potential transfer to Manchester United with his latest comments.
The French midfielder can join a new club this summer for free after running down his at PSG. He reveals talks have been held already with Serie A champions Juventus.
“I’ve spoken with Juventus, it’s a great club where everyone would like to play,” Rabiot said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
“I like Italy so much, it’s wonderful here. A demanding season awaits me. At Juventus? Juve watched me and we talked about it, but I can’t say anything.
“Manchester United? It’s the same as last year, I have to decide. I’m on vacation for now. Soon you will know.”
A piece by Miguel Delaney for The Independent this week stated that United considered Rabiot as a ‘gettable’ option, as well as Sporting Lisbon’s Bruno Fernandes, rather than stepping up their interest in Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
There is reason to take caution with Rabiot. For a 24-year-old he has already racked up enough controversies to fill an entire career.
For instance, he missed the 2015 Coupe de France final after turning up late for a team meeting. Or when he went behind former PSG coach Laurent Blanc’s back the same year by telling club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi to loan him out of his amount of game time dropped.
I’m not saying Rabiot is a bad egg – but I’m always cautious when a young player leaves a club on such bad terms.
