Currently second in Serie A, waiting for his 15-point penalty to be retried, Juventus Turin would like to keep the "Duke" and has made him an offer of extension, but according to L'Equipe of the day, the tendency is for a departure this summer, at the expiration of his current contract.

Ten Hag wants Rabiot, Newcastle too

Attracted by the Premier League, Rabiot could continue his career at Manchester United. According to L'Equipe, Erik ten Hag wants him badly and has already discussed with him several times to convince him to come. Rabiot had already come close to joining the Red Devils in 2019, 2022 as well as last winter. This summer could finally be the right one.

Note that according to L'Equipe, Newcastle has also been interested in Rabiot for several months and could also take action. "I do not have a favorite team, there is not really a club where I would necessarily like to play. It's mainly the championship and its level that attracts me," said Rabiot last December in the middle of the World Cup.
