Brilliant French midfielder Rabiot sends Arsenal message after officially agreeing summer move
French midfielder Adrien Rabiot has discussed his reasons for joining Juventus this summer amidst interest from Arsenal.
Rabiot is one of the most gifted midfielders in world football and is being chased by some of the biggest clubs in world football after clubs learned that he would be leaving PSG at the end of the season after failing to agree a new contract with the French giants.
And that led to some speculation in the media that Arsenal were prepared to open talks and try to get the midfielder all signed up, especially as Ile Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan and is in need of improving his squad over the course of the transfer window.
However, after months of speculation and rumours, the French midfielder signed for Juventus this on a free transfer, and he has revealed the reasons why he has made that move to Turin.
“Juve are a great club, one that is very prestigious with a lot of history and a European tradition. In my opinion and with all respect, it’s a step up from PSG,” Rabiot said on the Daily Express website.
“Gianluigi Buffon told me many interesting things about Juventus. He told me that Juve was the best way for me to take a step forwards in my career. A season here is worth more than anywhere else.
“The Champions League doesn’t come overnight. I’m here to help the club win it and achieve other goals. I had the chance to develop playing with superstars.”
Rabiot is a brilliant young player that could develop into one of the best midfielders in the game, so if there was a chance to sign him up on a deal then they should have moved more quickly as he would most certainly bring more quality to the Gunners midfield.
Arsenal have the financial power to convince Rabiot to make that move to the Premier League, but they have missed out on a real transfer bargain here, he could have been a fantastic signing for Emery.
