Barcelona offered Juventus midfielder for free – Valverde ‘almost signed him in 2019’

Barcelona have been offered a chance to sign Adrien Rabiot as a free agent when his contract ends at the end of the season, per Diario Sport.

In 2019, Ernesto Valverde almost signed the Frenchman for Barcelona at the end of his contract with PSG.

The 27-year-old midfielder has been in impressive form for Juventus with five goals and two assists in his last 16 games so far.

France took him to the World Cup in place of Paul Pogba and he certainly hasn’t disappointed – he’s so far featured in five games scoring one and assisting a second. He only missed the game against Morocco through illness

Rabiot is a technically gifted midfielder who completes 83% of his passes and averages 2.6 successful tackles per game.

Given his age and profile, Barca may be better off replacing Sergio Busquets with him rather than getting another player over 30.
