Rabiot remains optimistic about Juventus’ future with multiple possibilities

    France midfielder Adrien Rabiot has not revealed whether he plans to stay at Juventus despite his contract only running until the end of the season.

    The Bianconeri are still struggling in the Europa League and Coppa Italia after a 15-point deduction derailed their league campaign.

    Rabiot insisted that he was focused on the rest of Juventus’ season and not his personal position in an interview with Tuttosport.

    He said, “My future? There is no news at the moment, but we will definitely talk soon, because in about two months the season will end and we will try to discuss (this), but I am calm.

    “There is the possibility of leaving, but there is also the possibility of signing a new contract with Juventus.

    “I feel good in Turin, I work well at the club and I have a good relationship with the management, my teammates and the coach who also helped me.

    “I believe that all this is important in order to feel good and, therefore, make the right choice for your future.”

    Rabiot could very well have left Juventus last year when he was reportedly close to moving to Manchester United, although the move to Old Trafford fell through.

    After a difficult start to the season, Juve threw themselves into the race for the Serie A title. However, their chances were lost with a 15 points deduction due to financial irregularities.

    As a result, Juventus entered the international break in seventh, seven points behind fourth-placed Milan with 11 games remaining.

    Rabiot added: “Without 15 points (deduction) we could have qualified for the Champions League.

    “But to be honest, I say that we could qualify even if the penalty remained. I believe in it.

    “We are focused on all fronts and it is clear that the Europa League is something we will try to win.

    “There are still a lot of good teams left, but we want to achieve something important. I am sure that we can win both the Europa League and the European Cup.

    “We have a difficult season for all known reasons, but I believe that despite this, we are able to win.

    “In fact, to be honest, I can also say that success will bring us even more satisfaction.”

    Juventus’ second game after the international break is the first leg of the Cup semi-final against Inter.

    “The guys in the team really want to win, also because this is the historical spirit of Juventus,” Rabiot said.

    “The DNA of the club is clear and we all want to pass it on to those who come.

    “To be honest, I got the impression that Inter is a less powerful team than the one we faced in Turin.

    “They also seemed less strong than last year. I had a feeling that they began to trust less.”

    Rabiot initially focused on France, with Le Bleus to play the Netherlands and Ireland in the Euro 2024 qualifiers in the coming days.
