Romano: Juventus renewal ‘getting difficult’ for Rabiot – entourage ‘talking to other clubs’

By Oliver Fisher -

The chances of seeing Adrien Rabiot extending his contract with Juventus is now ‘difficult’ and other clubs are sniffing, according to a report.

According to what is being reported by Fabrizio Romano, Rabiot’s contract extension at Juventus is now ‘getting difficult’ and there is still no agreement over new deal between the two sides.

Juventus believe that they have already put forward their best possible offer, having tabled a bid worth over €7m net per season to the Frenchman, and they are awaiting his response.

The decision now rests in the hands of Rabiot who will only choose where he wants to play next season after the European Championship with France, but his camp are ‘also talking to other clubs’.

We have seen from the Joshua Zirkzee saga that Milan will not get into any bidding wars when it comes to salary or commissions owed to agents, and it seems like the money put forward by Juve is tough to match.

However, the Turin-based source Tuttosport did report a few days ago that the Milan management have tabled a three-year offer to Rabiot and matched Juve’s salary bid. There has also been talk of interest from Premier League clubs too.

      1. Douglas Luiz is absolutely an upgrade over Locatelli or whatever else midfielder they have over there, but Thuram is a downgrade compared to Rabiot.

        1. That is the point. If Rabiot leaves, he will be replaced by a much better mildfielder, Douglas Luiz. Thuram is an younger addition, he is not meant to replace Rabiot. They are different profiles. Thuram is better than Locatelli btw.

          1. Rabiot and Thuram literally are the same profile of a player. Thuram MIGHT reach or surpass Rabiot in the future, but right now he is a downgrade from him.
            Thuram and Locatelli are nothing alike.
            Locatelli is a regista, thuram is box to box midfielder. Douglas Luiz is way closer in his playing style to Locatelli than Thuram will ever be.

      2. Above all they signed Motta. I expect a more interesting Serie A next season. Conte’s Napoli is also on their way to upgrade the squad, with Rafa Marin and Buongiorno to begin. Your team will still have its all key players.

        While Milan, well, we signed Fonseca.

  1. This is like the Bonucci thing.
    Bonucci was available but we needed to address other positions. Since he was available we took him.

    Now Rabiot is good but we need a Kanté like player more than Rabiot right now. If we had the money then sure but there are other more important positions.

    1. How is it comparable when we paid over 40mil for bonucci and rabiot actually currently is a free agent ?

  2. If Milan only “matched” Juve bid, then why would Rabiot even move to Milan? Milan won’t give him anything more than Juve would, and he would have to start from the scratch with his position in team, with fans, with constant pefromances (to not be called a flop), and as a “bonus” he would receive a lot of hate from Juve fans. And it’s not like in Milan he would be a top gun, as there are other midfielders fighting for squad (Reijnders, Loftus Cheek, Bennacer).

    It just doesn’t make sense for him to move to Milan for the same money.

  3. So according to reports we are bring in Rabiot AND Lukaku for 7mil+ each when our star player makes that and other core players haven’t had their contracts renewed yet?

    okay…

    1. Yeah especially when Zlatan strongly suggeted that they want to sign young players and they brought Fonseca because he can work with young

      Guess media have to write about something

      1. Before it was Pioli’s fault. Now it’s the media. We just have the most abominable management for top clubs in Europe…
