Frenchman tells Chelsea he is open to Premier League move


Chelsea target Adrien Rabiot says he is open to a move to the Premier League next year once his Juventus contract expires at the end of June. 

The Frenchman has really struggled for game time this season at Juventus and he wants more guaranteed football at this stage of his career as he is not getting any younger

Despite being one of the most gifted central midfielders in the game – Rabiot has never really adapted to Italian football like many had hoped – and Juventus are also keen to make sure that they get his massive £7M a season wages off the books

He is out of contract at the end of the season – and with Chelsea looking to add some more quality to the side – Rabiot is a player that is reportedly on the agenda of Graham Potter

The France midfielder, who was briefly part of the youth set-up at Manchester City, is currently with Les Bleus at the World Cup and will decide his future after the Qatar tournament.

But he has now opened up and admitted that he would be open to making a move to the Premier League once his time with Juventus comes to an end.

“I feel attracted by the football, by the Premier League itself and its super competitive nature,” Rabiot was quoted

“I loved my time there, even if I was young. I liked the culture and the life; my family liked it too.

“I am not indifferent to playing in England, but there will be many options to consider.

“I have not spoken with Juve about the future, for example as our start to the season was tough, plus the World Cup was coming and I wanted to focus on it.

“After the World Cup, I will start thinking about my future more concretely.”
