Newcastle retain an interest in Adrien Rabiot and could make a summer approach for the midfielder, who may leave Juventus in the summer.
According to Calciomercato, Newcastle are interested in signing Adrien Rabiot in the summer window after failing to convince Juventus to let him go in January. The Bianconeri ideally do not want to sell the midfielder, but given his struggles, it would not be surprising to see him depart Turin if a suitable offer comes through.
Adrien Rabiot’s career at Juventus might be coming to a close, as interest from clubs across Europe and England mounts. The midfielder has a contract until 2023 and the Italian side might look to cash in on him in the summer window.
There is considerable interest in the French midfielder from Premier League sides due to his experience at the highest level of football. The 26-year-old has played 30 times across all competitions this season, although he does not have a goal to show for his efforts.
While he may not be an automatic starter in all games, he features heavily in Max Allegri’s plans. However, the 26-year-old midfielder could listen to some of the attractive offers from Premier League clubs as he may want to test himself in England.
He is still young enough to be a long-term option for a team and does not have a shortage of suitors for him. Chelsea were showing interest before the January window, although their search for a wing-back meant their plans were put on hold.
They might yet return with an offer for him in the summer window. However, they will have competition from Newcastle United, who were also keen in the January window. The Magpies ended up signing Bruno Guimaraes from French side Lyon, although the Brazilian is yet to hit his stride in England.
The Magpies will surely spend heavily in the summer window if they avoid being relegated to the Championship. Rabiot features high on their shortlist as Eddie Howe aims to form a world-class team.
It remains to be seen how much Juventus demand for the midfielder as Newcastle will certainly have the financial muscle to pay them the required price.
