Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is to undergo a medical with Juventus on Monday ahead of signing a five-year deal with the Turin club.
The 24-year-old has not featured for PSG in 2019, despite being fully fit and available, following a public spat with the ownership over contract talks last year.
Despite coach Thomas Tuchel’s claims that his exclusion from the first team was not due to his contract situation, both parties’ stubbornness in talks over a new deal seems to have led to an impasse, resulting in the running down of the France international’s current contract.
Rabiot was not short of suitors, having reportedly held preliminary discussions with a number of European clubs since January, but is set to finalise his move to the Serie A champions.
Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici flew to the French capital on Friday to conclude negotiations and secure Rabiot’s signature, before the player returns to Italy to complete his medical on Monday.
