Rabiot closer to PSG exit as Juve make contract offer
Juventus have reportedly moved quickly for outgoing Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot by making him a contract offer.
The 24-year-old has been a regular at the Parc des Princes since his breakthrough season in 2012-13, but he has made no secret of his desire to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of June.
The contract stand-off resulted in Rabiot losing his place in coach Thomas Tuchel’s side during the course of the Ligue 1 season and saw him attract the interest of a host of top European clubs to his impending availability.
Barcelona were leading the chase, but Rabiot’s £175,000-a-week wage demands and a signing on-fee of £10million scuppered that switch.
Manchester United have also been linked as they look to fill the void left by Ander Herrera, who is ironically replacing Rabiot at PSG as his contract at Old Trafford is coming to an end.
But reports claim Juve have already put a contract offer on the table worth £5.
3m-a-year, which could raise to £7m related to performance-based bonuses, as they look to link Rabiot up with fellow free transfer summer signing Aaron Ramsey from Arsenal.
