Report reveals Rabiot’s playing role against Sampdoria

August 21, 2022 - 2:30 pm

Adrien Rabiot is set for his first Juventus start of the season after his failed move to Manchester United.

The midfielder missed the Bianconeri first game of the campaign because of suspension and he was expected to leave the club before this match.

Juve had agreed on a transfer fee for his sale to Manchester United, but the midfielder’s outrageous demands scuppered the move.

He is now set to remain at the Allianz Stadium for another campaign and he will almost certainly leave the club as a free agent next summer.

For now, Max Allegri needs to reintegrate him into his squad and a report on Tuttojuve claims he is very likely to start the match against Sampdoria.

The report says because of the transfer rumours around him, Denis Zakaria is not 100% ready, so Rabiot will start the match.

He would play as a left-midfielder in a midfield-three as Juve attempts to win back-to-back matches.

Juve FC Says

Rabiot is one of the players that Allegri trusts and it is hardly a surprise that the Juve manager is bringing him back into the team.

With the likes of Paul Pogba out with an injury, he could enjoy an extended run in the team at the start of this campaign.

    Sadly we didn’t offload him when had the chance. Now Zakaria, which is a better player with lower salary, might have to make room in order Parades to join. We should freeze out Rabiot so that the rest not become insubordinate

    This is a ridiculous situation & Allegri’s pampering of the spoilt brat Rabiot is totally unpalatable. What message does this send to the younger players? Rabiot told the club he wanted to leave, and the club agreed on a fee with Manchester United. Then upsteps Veronique Rabiot who is clearly insane considering the demands she expected to be met. Even Manchester United who are throwing 10s of millions at clubs & players all over Europe wouldn’t entertain her. Rabiot should be frozen out completely & told to find another club or not play again this season. He wanted out & now shamelessly walks straight back into the team. I would rather the club rescind his contract than have to see him wear our colours ever again. I will never acknowledge Rabiot as a Bianconero ever again & the Ultras need to let Allegri know this is not acceptable. I have always supported & respected Max Allegri for all he has done for the club but this is way too far for me to do so now. This is just an appalling act & it cannot stand.
