Barcelona is facing a complex financial situation. This means they have to consider all their options, including players who are about to end their contracts. Signing a free agent is more cost-effective for the team and this has made Adrien Rabiot a favorite.
Recent reports claim that the Catalan club has set their sights on the Juventus player. But this is not entirely new. The team and the player have already been linked in the past. Before joining Serie A, Rabiot was a target for Barcelona, but he preferred the Turin club.
They will try again
Although the previous negotiations did not go as well as the Blaugranas had hoped, they are now willing to resume them. The Frenchman’s contract ends in the summer of this year and the possibility of him arriving as a free agent has put the Ciudad Condal team on alert.
The plan of Xavi’s team is to strengthen the squad for next season, but without investing too much. Signing the 28-year-old would be the ideal move in financial terms. This would represent a considerable saving compared to the other options the club is considering.
He hasn’t decided yet
As usual, the possibility of the Saint-Maurice native playing in LaLiga is not a fact but a rumor. According to Barca Blaugranes, the player has not yet decided whether he wants to stay at the Vecchia Signora or prefers a change of scenery.
According to previous reports, a renewal with the Italian club is not ruled out either. The club hopes to negotiate with the player, but his position on the matter has not been revealed. For now, he will stay until the end of the season in Italy, where he has played 1,800 minutes in 20 games and scored 3 goals and provided 3 assists.
