For the past few weeks, there’s been non-stop rumours linking players to Newcastle United, who were recently purchased by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund.
One of the players linked to the Tyneside club is Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot. On October 13th, Calciomercato reported the Magpies are showing interest in the midfielder and the Old Lady ‘aim to sell’ him in January.
Tutto Juve, a website focusing its coverage on the Turin club, brings in a short update on the 26-year-old.
It’s said the France international’s exit from the Serie A side could happen in the winter market, mainly due to Newcastle.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side could sell the former Paris Saint-Germain main to the English club for €30m in the next window. If he manages to seal a switch to St James’ Park, the player would earn around €10m per season.
In the event Rabiot leaves his current employer in January, it will help the Italian club save on his high wages. Juventus then ‘plan to throw themselves’ on AS Monaco’s Aurélien Tchouaméni.
Tutto Juve have suggested Rabiot’s sale to Newcastle for €30m could take place at the start of next year. Time should tell whether or not this will become a reality, if the move happens, the Magpies will surely be able to negotiate that figure down.
