Man City keen on Rabiot

Manchester City and have registered their interest in Juventus midfielder, Adrien Rabiot, according to the player’s agent.

It is believed the Premier League giants are interested in signing the 25-year-old during the summer transfer window.

However, Rabiot’s representative has said that it is unlikely he will leave Juventus this summer after finding his feet with the Serie A side during the 2020-2021 campaign.

Rabiot’s agent told Italian newspaper Tuttosport: ‘The Frenchman is on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City goal list.

‘But he will not leave Juventus.’

The Juventus midfielder had been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League last summer after an underwhelming first campaign in Turin.

Carlo Ancelotti reportedly made several moves in 2020 to link up with the 25-year-old France international – who broke through into the Paris Saint-Germain first-team under the Italian in 2012 – but was unsuccessful on each occasion.

Rabiot was reportedly open to a move to the English top-flight last year, with Manchester United also having been linked with him in the last 12 months.     

As a result, Premier League leader Manchester City have named Rabiot as a potential transfer target for the summer.

Pep Guardiola may look to sign Rabiot as a long-term replacement for City midfielder, Fernandinho.   

Rabiot has also made an impact on the international scene, having picked up 11 French caps so far.

However, the 25-year-old did miss out on the opportunity to represent France at the 2018 World Cup.
