Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot is set to stay at Juventus this January, with both the player himself and Chief Football Officer Fabio Paratici ruling out a move.
Rabiot has struggled to nail down a place in the Juve side since signing on a free in the summer, and Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with a potential move for him in January, while Can has featured scarcely under new boss Maurizio Sarri.
However, despite the reported interest, Juventus transfer chief Paratici has claimed that both midfielders will stay at the club.
Speaking to Sky Sport Italia,
“Rabiot arrived here after not playing for eight months. It’s only natural on a physical level he should take time to adapt. He paid the price for that, but he has done well when used.
‘We are confident, he is an important player and a guarantee for Juve, not a question mark or a doubt. We have an important squad, with a lot of competition for places, and that’s how it should be at this level.”
The Frenchman himself also ruled out the possibility that he could leave the Serie A champions this winter. Speaking to TuttoMercatoWeb, he said:
“I feel good physically, I follow the work that the coach tells us to do and I feel good here
“On the right I can re-enter to the left, whilst on the left I will have a better opportunity to shoot.
“The Italian league is not easy, but no championship is.
