Rabiot 2, the revenge. Between spring and summer the French midfielder blossomed. If it is not transferable, we are close to it. In fact, Juventus is ready to arm him in Turin, rejecting the court of Arsenal and beyond. And thus renouncing a very rich capital gain. Rabiot’s first season in Juventus, with Sarri on the bench, had been anything but exciting.
The second had begun for him with a supporting actor role, before joining the titular median on a permanent basis. In the final rush of the championship, with the Champions pass at stake, Pirlo has no longer been able to do without the “Duca”, author of two very heavy goals in the last three days. With 3,254 minutes under his belt he was the fourth most used Juventus player after Danilo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Szcesny. Finally, at the European Championships, Rabiot was one of the most positive players in disappointing France. Used in all four games played by the Galletti, he gave excellent answers even when coach Deschamps asked him to adapt to the role of left-back (against Portugal) or left-handed winger in midfield (against Switzerland).
Allegri really likes his flexibility, as he contemplates placing Rabiot in a midline completed by Bentancur and Locatelli. The latter will be at the center of a meeting between Juventus and Sassuolo on the agenda between Wednesday and Thursday. The bianconeri, strengthened by the preference of the blue midfielder, are ready to please the neroverdi with a raise from 30 to 40 million, thus equalizing Arsenal’s offer. The crux to be discussed is the formula of the operation. In Turin they push for Locatelli’s onerous loan with repayment in installments. A technical counterpart that is welcome to the Emilian club like the defender Dragusin can enter the negotiation.
