Juventus center midfielder Adrien Rabiot is on the way out of Turin.

Last summer, Juventus signed two veteran center midfielders for free in Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal and Adrien Rabiot of PSG. While the former occasionally showed some star ability, including in front of goal, the latter struggled mightily in his first season in Turin.

More from Old Juve

For Rabiot, the 2019-2020 Serie A campaign will likely end up being his only season in Turin. Ramsey could also be moved this summer, but Rabiot’s days with Juve are clearly numbered.

Both Rabiot and Ramsey have been mentioned as potential pieces for a Paul Pogba deal with Manchester United, as Juventus are keen on reuniting with the superstar center midfielder.

According to a report from La Gazzetta dello Sport, via JuveFC.com, Adrien Rabiot has already had talks with the Red Devils over a move this summer.

Everton could be another Premier League team interested in Rabiot, as they have ambitions of qualifying for the Champions League and becoming a force in England’s top-flight under new ownership.

They have Carlo Ancelotti leading the way and made a ton of aggressive attacking signings last summer.

Rabiot failed to make an impact for the Bianconeri in 2019-2020, but the Old Lady could churn out a huge profit from the sale of the midfielder. It’s reasonable to think they could nab at least 20 million euros for Rabiot or the equivalent value in a player swap, since Rabiot could significantly reduce the cash Manchester United want from Juve in any Pogba deal.

The Bianconeri should prioritize using Rabiot to try and bring Pogba back to Turin, since they need help for the likes of Rodrigo Bentancur in midfield. Using midfielders like Miralem Pjanic and Rabiot for upgrades like Jorginho, Arthur Melo, and, especially, Pogba would be a wise strategy for the Bianconeri this summer.
