Manchester City are looking for a replacement for Ilkay Gundogan, who is expected to leave when his contract expires in June. Pep Guardiola and his leaders would be eyeing the side of Serie A, to find an element capable of adapting to their game. And more precisely in the city of Turin.

According to information reported by Soccer Transfers, the Citizens are thinking of Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, whom they could sign for free this summer. The Frenchman came close to joining Manchester United last summer but his salary demands prevented the transfer.

Strong competition on its file

Other prestigious names are circulating to strengthen the workforce of City, but Adrien Rabiot represents a free option which could offset the departure of Ilkay Gundogan. His potential arrival could be excellent news for Manchester City, which is facing cash flow problems due to the irregularities denounced by the Premier League. The question then arises about Adrien Rabiot’s ability to adapt to English football, which is very different from what he experienced in France and Italy. If he succeeds in this transition, he could become a quality reinforcement for Pep Guardiola’s team.

The case should be closely followed by fans of the two Manchesters, whose rivalry remains strong. The signing of Adrien Rabiot with the Citizens would constitute a snub to the Red Devils. But the competition will be tough for City, which is not the only one on this issue.

For appeal, Adrien Rabiot has been playing at Juventus in Turin since the summer of 2019, when he arrived free of charge from PSG. The native of Saint-Maurice has since played 157 games, in all competitions, under the tunic of the Bianconeri. The player has also scored 13 goals and delivered 8 assists.
