Juve would reportedly be happy to sell him, with no signals that they want to extend his contract, which expires in 2023.

However, if the North East club want to sign Rabiot, they will have to deal with his agent and mother Veronique first, who has been described as a ‘volcanic’ character.

The Verdict: For the right price…

Although money is not an object to the new mega-rich owners, they should still be sensible with how much cash they splash in the market.

Rabiot is a player that would come as a bit of a risk, given that he has suffered with injury problems and missed a combined total of 45 days over 2021/2022 so far (Transfermarkt).

He’s not exactly been prolific with Juve in midfield, with a mere six goals and five assists recorded in 95 games in total over all competitions across the last three consecutive seasons (Transfermarkt).

However, he would certainly be an upgrade on the Tyneside outfit’s current midfield options, averaging more shots, dribbles and pass success per game than Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey and Sean Longstaff in their respective domestic leagues so far this term (WhoScored).

France national team coach Didier Deschamps described him as a player who ‘has always had technical qualities’, and at 26 years of age, he has not reached his peak yet.

Nonetheless, Rabiot could be a smart addition to the squad, for the right price.
