Adrien Rabiot has confirmed that his search for a new club is down to only two clubs and he will soon decide between Juventus and Man United.
The Frenchman made it clear to the Paris Saint Germain hierarchy that he wouldn’t be signing an extension with the club back in December.
His eagerness to leave prompted a harsh treatment from the club as he was made unavailable for selection for Thomas Tuchel’s side and had to train with the U23’s.
🔴🔵 The meeting concerning #Rabiot took place. Nasser was absent to everyone's surprise. Tuchel slammed the door. Dialogue is broken off.

Addressing the entire fiasco, PSG Sporting director Antero Henrique said: “At this point, no [I am not surprised]. It was a decision made by the club following a meeting I had with the player.
“The player informed me that he would not sign a contract and that he wanted to leave the club by being free at the end of the season, i.e. at the end of his contract.
For the player, this will have a very clear consequence: he will remain on the bench for an indefinite period.” (via : Yahoo)
Rabiot has since been allowed to talk with foreign clubs with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Juventus all interested in signing him as a free agent.
The 24-year-old after months of deliberation has cut short his list to Manchester United and Juventus amongst which he will soon decide.
Speaking to Italian Publication, Corriere Dello Sport, Rabiot said: “I like Italy very much,”
“Staying here is wonderful, you can rest and recharge your batteries. A demanding season awaits me. Juve came looking for me and we talked, but I can’t say anything else. I still don’t know where I’ll go. They’re a great club, where every good player would like to play.”
When asked about Manchester United’s interest in him, Rabiot responded: “The same applies to them. I still have to make a decision. I’m on holiday for now. You’ll know soon.”
