Juventus would be happy to sell Adrien Rabiot to Chelsea this summer, so long as they make an offer in the region of €15-20m, writes the SW.
That’s according to Tuttosport, who say the Frenchman would be a ‘real bargain’ at that price but one the Italian giants are more than happy to sanction.
They explain that rumours from England of Chelsea being interested in Rabiot are being warmly welcomed at Continassa as Juventus would be willing to let him go.
The midfielder is in the final year of his deal, but that is worth €7m a year, something Juventus would be pleased to get rid of and be able to spend elsewhere as they plan a summer rebuild.
Chelsea cannot yet move as they remain restricted by the sanctions put on Roman Abramovich, but as soon as that knot is untied, which could be sooner rather than later, ‘a decisive move’ from Chelsea is expected.
€15-20m would ‘satisfy’ those in charge at Juventus as it would guarantee a good ‘capital gain’ for a player who has been deemed transferable.
Whether Chelsea do offer that remains to be seen, but it’s a relatively low price, even if their new owners don’t wish to spend as Abramovich has down the years.
There’s no mention of what deal they’d offer Rabiot, so that still has to be determined, but it seems at Juventus they are convinced a bid will be made at some point this summer.
