‘Can’t Even Lace Rodri’s Boots’ ‘Not City Material’ Fans Laugh Off Agent’s Claim That Club Are After France International

Manchester City are interested in Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot, according to agent Vincenzo Morabito.

The France international has been linked with a number of clubs in England, including Arsenal and Manchester United, but in an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Morabito claimed that the 25-year-old was on City’s list of targets, although the player is not interested in moving:

“The Frenchman is on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City target list. But he will not leave Juventus.”


Morabito does have a lot of connections in Italy but supporters on Twitter are very sceptical about the claim that City are pursuing Rabiot:

Rabiot actually spent a brief spell with City as a youth player back in 2008 before he returned to France and made his name at Paris Saint-Germain.

The midfielder moved to Juventus on a free transfer in 2019 and has been a regular in the Serie A champions’ first-team over the past two seasons. As some fans have rightly pointed out, though, midfield is not exactly an area that manager Pep Guardiola is short of numbers.
