The future of Adrien Rabiot at Juventus seems to be under question, as the club appears to be in no rush to negotiate the renewal of his contract.
The French midfielder’s contract, extended last year, is due to expire once again.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the relationship between Rabiot and Juventus has indeed strengthened, underscored by his role as vice-captain. Initial discussions have taken place with Rabiot’s mother Veronique – who also acts as his agent – regarding contract renewal. Talks are revolving around an extension for 12 months or more, but possibly under reduced financial terms compared to Rabiot’s current €7.5 million deal.
However, despite this, the Premier League remains a potential complication. There is considerable interest in the French midfielder from Premier League teams, which could potentially sway him away from Juventus.
Further updates on Rabiot’s contract situation at Juventus can be expected as negotiations progress. Offering him a reduced pay package could prove to be a risky move, given the interest from the English Premier League. However, Juventus’s strong relationship with Rabiot could potentially be a deciding factor in the resolution of this issue.
