According to Fabrizio Romano, one-time Manchester United target Adrien Rabiot is unsure of his future. Romano reports that the £149K-Per-Week Juventus midfielders contract expires in June 2023. The French international when asked about his future said: “I don’t know if I’ll sign new deal and stay here. I’m still waiting to discuss with the club”. The report also states that the Turin giants will insist on keeping Rabiot, who has enjoyed an impressive season thus far, scoring 10 goals in all competitions.

French international midfielder Rabiot reportedly remains keen on a move to the Premier League, despite enjoying an impressive season for the Turin club in Serie A. The one-time Manchester United target has also recently been linked with a move to La Liga leaders Barcelona, but Romano’s report states the Juventus player dreams of the Premier League.

Reports surfaced in the summer that the French international was deep in negotiations with the Old Trafford club after a fee of around £ 15 million had been agreed between the two clubs. Despite the agreement between the clubs, the midfielder reportedly had hefty wage demands, which led to Manchester United ending their interest. The Rabiot deal falling through was part of a frustrating summer for Erik ten Hag, who also failed to land his top target Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.

What Rabiot Would Bring to Manchester United

Rabiot is a left-footed central midfielder who has played several midfield roles. He reads the game well, which makes him useful when protecting his defence from rapid counterattacks. He covers ground effectively, which makes him useful in covering fullbacks who may venture forward.

The Frenchman is disciplined and rarely caught out of position. Rabiot is also adept at playing quick balls to his teammates to go and wreak havoc on the opposition – making him useful in the transition from defence to attack. His quick passing is one of his best assets. The French international uses his upper body strength well to impose himself and disrupt opposition attacks. Rabiot protects the ball well – when under pressure, which allows him to pick out the best option. It remains to be seen whether Manchester United will re-ignite their interest in Rabiot, whose future remains uncertain.
