Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot has given an update on his future as he approaches the end of his contract this summer. The midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in recent seasons.

Rabiot joined Juventus from Paris Saint-Germain in 2019 and has been an ever present figure in the squad, despite their struggles this season. The 27-year-old looked set to make the move to Old Trafford following Erik ten Hag’s arrival in the summer, however the deal eventually collapsed due to Rabiot’s hefty wage demands.

Despite reportedly agreeing a £15.2 million fee for his services, United instead went onto snap up Casemiro and Christian Eriksen and haven’t really looked back since. However, Rabiot looks increasingly likely to leave Turin this summer with his contract set to expire in a matter of months.

As quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Rabiot has spoken openly on his future and where he may be next season. The midfielder said: “I wanna play Champions League, it will be crucial point to make a decision on my future.

“New deal with Juventus? There are no recent talks but we’ve time to do that, there’s no news at this stage.”

Rabiot’s comments suggests he is very much open to a move away from Juventus given they are unlikely to be able to offer him Champions League football next season. The Italian giants currently sit eighth in Serie A after they were docked 15 points for ‘financial irregularities’ and ‘false accounting’ earlier this season.

Meanwhile, United’s impressive season under Erik ten Hag that currently sees them sit third in the Premier League could tempt Rabiot into further negotiations with the Red Devils, if they were keen on signing him. If United aren’t to sign Marcel Sabitzer permanently this summer then they could look to bolster their midfield elsewhere. However, the pursuit of Rabiot may still depend on whether his wage demands have decreased at all.
