Adrien Rabiot waiting for Real Madrid approach

Adrien Rabiot is reportedly waiting for an approach from Real Madrid, with Liverpool and Newcastle United vying for his signature.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool and Newcastle United are interested in signing Adrien Rabiot in the summer transfer window. The 29-year-old has become a free agent after his contract with Juventus expired a few days ago. However, he is waiting for an approach from Real Madrid while he courts interest from the two Premier League clubs.

Adrien Rabiot at Juventus: The story so far

Adrien Rabiot has been one of the best midfielders in Serie A during his spell with Juventus. The Frenchman arrived at the Allianz Stadium in July 2019 after an acrimonious exit from Paris Saint-Germain. While he endured some teething problems in his early days with the Bianconeri, he was a mainstay in the middle of the park for half a decade.

The 29-year-old turned out over 200 times for Juventus while chipping in with 22 goals and 15 assists. Rabiot has also won over Didier Deschamps after his run-in with France’s head coach six years ago to become a regular for Les Bleus. Meanwhile, the former PSG midfielder has become a free agent after his contract with Juventus expired a few days ago, with the situation alerting top clubs like Liverpool and Newcastle United.

A man in demand

Liverpool will look to sign a replacement for Thiago Alcantara after the Spaniard departed from Anfield as a free agent. While Thiago was not a pivotal figure for the Merseyside club before his exit, they still need to fill the vacant spot. Rabiot has thus emerged as a viable target for Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Newcastle United’s interest in Adrien Rabiot is understandable. The Magpies have sanctioned the sale of Elliot Anderson, while Sean Longstaff faces an uncertain future at St. James’ Park. So, it behoves Newcastle United to sign a midfielder, with the 29-year-old French international emerging as a viable target.

However, Liverpool and Newcastle United must wait for some time before landing Rabiot, who wants to join Real Madrid. The Frenchman is waiting for an approach from Los Blancos. Real Madrid might delve into the market for a midfielder, although the report does not mention if Rabiot is a target.

With Rabiot waiting for an approach from Real Madrid, Liverpool and Newcastle United must bide their time. Meanwhile, Juventus will look to tie the 29-year-old to a new contract. So, it will be interesting to see where he plies his trade next season.
