Juventus complete signing of Adrien Rabiot from PSG
Juventus have completed the signing of Adrien Rabiot on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain after ending his contract at the French club.
The 24-year-old French midfielder put pen to paper on a deal reportedly worth £6.2million per year plus bonuses and a £9m signing-on fee.
Rabiot, on the new deal said : ‘The last few months have been complicated both from a sporting and personal level, but today I am ready to leave everything behind and begin a new adventure.’
The creative midfielder was a target to a number of clubs around Europe, including Liverpool, but opted to join Juventus admitting Gianluigi Buffon and the vibe of playing with Cristiano Ronaldo convinced him.
He added: ‘Now was the right time for me to come here, and that’s why I’m here. I have to tell you that in the past season I talked a lot to Gigi.
‘We had the opportunity to talk and he gave me lots of suggestions and advice. Of course, we talked a lot about Juventus, he knows the team and club very well.
