Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly interested in signing Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
Spurs are in the battle with Arsenal and Chelsea, according to Calciomercato.
Rabiot has had a fantastic season at Juventus, scoring five goals and assisting on two others.
This is causing problems for Juventus because Rabiot’s contract expires at the conclusion of the season.
According to Calciomercato, the Bianconeri should have started the renewal process much sooner.
Rabiot will’strengthen his status as a top player’ if he continues to impress for his country at the 2022 World Cup.
This implies he’ll basically have all of the cards in terms of making a profitable move elsewhere.
Rabiot is a favourite of Paratici.
Manchester United attempted to recruit Rabiot in the summer but failed owing to his camp’s pay demands.
Veronique Rabiot, Rabiot’s mother and agent, reportedly wanted a salary of €10 million per year (about £165,000 per week).
Juve, it appears, cannot offer him more than his present salary of €7 million per year.
Tottenham, Arsenal, and Chelsea, on the other hand, should be able to meet their expectations.
When Juventus signed the Frenchman on a free transfer in 2019, Spurs boss Fabio Paratici was in charge.
He is said to be a ‘big fan’ of Rabiot and is looking to swoop for him again.
According to Salarysport, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is presently Tottenham’s highest-paid midfielder, earning £100,000 a week.
Rabiot would become the highest-paid midfielder at N17 if he signed for £165,000 per week.
He’d also become Tottenham’s sixth-highest-paid player, trailing only Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Ivan Perisic, Cristian Romero, and Richarlison.
A fairly high salary, but considering the Spurs will likely sign him on a free transfer in the summer, it’s not too expensive overall.
