Premier League: Saul Niguez Doesn’t Shine, Chelsea Targets Juventus Midfielder


The Premier League leader , Chelsea , has reportedly found the right replacement candidate for Saul Niguez. The Blues are reportedly planning to secure the services of Adrien Rabiot from Juventus.

Saul is one of Chelsea’s new signings this summer. The midfielder was signed from Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.

So far, Saul’s performance is far from satisfactory. So it was rumored that Chelsea wanted to bring the midfielder home sooner.

Calciomercato claim that Chelsea have found a replacement for Saul. They plan to bring in Adrien Rabiot from Juventus.

Rabiot’s performance with the Bianconeri was also not very satisfactory, with often being a back-up. Previously, Newcastle United reportedly joined the hunt for the former PSG player.

Factor Thomas Tuchel
According to the report, there is a reason why Chelsea are interested in signing Adrien Rabiot . Because the manager, Thomas Tuchel is interested in securing the player.

Rabiot is a former Tuchel player at PSG. The midfielder had become Tuchel’s mainstay in the Les Parisien squad.

Tuchel feels Rabiot could be a good replacement for Saul. So he asked Chelsea management to sign him.

Great opportunity
The report claims that Chelsea’s chances of securing Rabiot’s services are quite large. Because Juventus are ready to sell the midfielder.

Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly not satisfied with the midfielder’s performance. He considered Rabiot only a surplus player for his squad.

In addition, Juventus is reportedly in need of additional funds for spending. So if Chelsea make a suitable offer then Juventus are ready to let him go.

Transfer Rate
Chelsea had to spend a lot of money to get Rabiot’s services. Because the midfielder’s contract is still quite long at Juventus.

Juventus reportedly priced the French national team player with a dowry of 30 million euros or Rp 485 billion.

Premier League: Newcastle United are ready to accommodate Adrien Rabiot who failed to develop at Juventus

The new rich English Premier League club, Newcastle United seems ready to accommodate midfielder Adrien Rabiot from Juventus in the January 2022 transfer window.

Juventus, as the owner of Adrien Rabiot, reportedly wants to sell the French national team player, because the player’s performance is not optimal.

The 26-year-old is still struggling to find a place in the Bianconeri’s first team, despite being a deadlock on several occasions. But the former PSG player did not play regularly.

While Newcastle is currently the new richest club in the English League. They have just been acquired by a Saudi Arabian consortium so they have plenty of funds to spend.

Newcastle are reportedly looking to buy some new players in January. Because they need additional energy to escape from the relegation zone.

Reports from Calicomercato, Newcastle want to bring in new players to boost the performance of his team. One of them is Adrien Rabiot .

Difficult to Develop
According to the report, Newcastle could secure the services of Rabiot as Massimiliano Allegri is not satisfied with the midfielder’s performance.

This season, Allegri has provided many opportunities for Rabiot to play. But the midfielder struggled to provide an appearance that satisfies Allegri.

That’s why Allegri thinks it doesn’t matter if Rabiot moves to Newcastle. Because he thinks Rabiot can still be replaced by other Juventus midfielders.

Need Fresh Funds
The same report also mentions that Juventus is also in need of additional funds. So they will sell Rabiot.

The Old Lady reportedly needed a large amount of funds for shopping. Because Allegri assesses the current Juventus squad cannot compete to become champions.

Price Adrien Rabiot
Juventus itself reportedly priced Rabiot quite expensive. They want around 30 million Euros for the services of the midfielder.

Newcastle reportedly don’t mind this price. So they are interested in redeeming it.
