During the current summer transfer window, Chelsea will compete with Manchester United, one of their main rivals, to acquire the services of Juventus midfield maestro Adrien Rabiot.
The contracts of both N’Golo Kante and Jorginho at Stamford Bridge will expire next June, and there has been a plethora of speculation over their respective fates in the recent past.
The speculation about Rabiot’s future has increased in recent weeks, with the 20-time English champions reported to be interested in bringing him to the English premier league during the summer transfer window. This would be a move that would take place in England.
However, according to L’Equipe, there is also interest from the Blues, with the West London club ready to explore the possibility of securing the services of the Frenchman in the current market. This is according to the club’s willingness to explore the possibility of acquiring the services of the Frenchman.
According to the source, Juventus may be willing to sell Rabiot for anywhere between 13 and 17 million British pounds.
French midfielder was a vital player for the Old Lady during the 2021-22 season, playing 45 games across all competitions and providing two assists in the process. He was a part of the team that won the Champions League.
Since moving to Italy’s top club from France in 2019, he has appeared in 129 games for the giants of Turin, during which time he has contributed six goals and six assists.
However, Paul Pogba is scheduled to make a free move to Juventus this summer, and it has been stated that Rabiot has been warned that he will not be a regular member of the first squad in the upcoming season.
It is reported that Newcastle United is also showing an interest in the midfielder, who is 27 years old. The Magpies now have the financial power to negotiate player contracts with the most successful teams in the globe. Newcastle United is also expressing an interest in the player.
David de Gea of Manchester United rejects a query from a Spanish journalist regarding Alejandro Garnacho
After being asked about the possibility of Alejandro Garnacho moving to Real Madrid, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea replied that the adolescent had no plans to leave the club.
When Garnacho turned 17 in July of last year, he signed his first professional contract. His current contract has an optional additional year that the club may choose to exercise until 2024.
Although the 18-year-old still has a significant amount of time left on his contract, new speculations in Spain say that Madrid are interested in signing him and will monitor his contract situation at Old Trafford. United is reported to be at ease with the teenager’s future, but the team will want to reward the Argentine for his performance in the season’s early going.
Garnacho traveled to Andalusia last week with the rest of the United team for warm-weather practice, which included two exhibition games against Cadiz and Real Betis.
The dynamic winger played in both contests, and following the loss to Betis, the Spanish media seized the opportunity to inquire about a prospective transfer to the Bernabeu. De Gea nevertheless stepped in and said to the media, “We won’t let him leave.”
Before the World Cup break, Garnacho was in excellent form, which made clubs all over Europe, including Madrid, sit up and take note. The 2-1 victory over Fulham by United in their penultimate encounter before the World Cup made Garnacho the youngest player to score an injury-time winner in the Premier League since Federico Macheda in 2009.
Despite playing for just 292 minutes in all competitions this season, the youthful player has scored in the Premier League and Europa League as well as provided two assists in the Carabao Cup. When playing for Erik ten Hag’s team, that translates to an average of a goal or an assist per 73 minutes, a performance that most elite players would find admirable.
Therefore, it should not be unexpected that Garnacho is currently linked with a move to a club like Madrid, but it appears that both De Gea and United are reluctant to let him go anytime soon.
