Who will come forward and save Adrien Rabiot from his Juventus nightmare?
Will it be Everton? The Italian media seem to think there’s a good chance of that happening, as Gazzetta dello Sport give us some fun percentages about where certain players could head next.
By now, it’s no secret Carlo Ancelotti is supposedly keen on having a reunion with the France international at Goodison Park, but he will have to, at least according to the press, have to see off interest from Manchester United.
It’s a tough ask, but going into the current week, there’s no difference between the two, as they both have a 40% chance of getting their man.
Gazzetta explain Everton and Manchester United are ‘in the running’ for the midfielder, who is currently valued at around €30m, and the remaining 20% pertain to Juventus, who would have to keep him around if a move to England wasn’t sorted out.
The 25-year-old hasn’t been a great success so far without being a failure either, but with a very high wage (costing them around €315k/game), offloading him could be in their best interests.
It’s an interesting situation, as Rabiot has always been linked with a move to the Premier League without ever getting one, but this summer feels like it could be the one, since any money in Juventus’ bank account would be a welcome profit.
Since both Manchester United and Everton are likely to have €30m spare in the summer, it’s a match made in, well, maybe not heaven, but close enough.
