Despite having to beat off Manchester United first, Newcastle United is still allegedly interested in a deal to sign Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Depending on how the club’s European campaign goes, Eddie Howe will likely be busy again in the January transfer window in his pursuit of high-caliber reinforcements to his first-team roster.


And veteran France midfielder Rabiot, who was sought after during the summer, is still one of those objectives.

According to Calciomercato, who claims that United is leading the race for Rabiot, the Magpies are in second place.


After an impressive start to the season with Juve, who have had a strong start to the season under Max Allegri, Rabiot is back in the news.


The 28-year-old’s performances have followed a disastrous summer during which he appeared destined to leave the team.


Rabiot chose to stay put, signing a new one-year deal that will keep him with the team until 2024.


The two United teams are leading the way in clubs’ interest in the midfielder despite the fact that he merely extended his contract for one more year.

Rabiot is still a desirable choice for a Premier League pair.

Rabiot is still ‘desirable’ to a number of teams, according to Calcio, and Newcastle believes that acquiring Rabiot will help them ‘continue to enhance’ their reputation as a premier European team.


They undoubtedly possess the financial strength to complete any transaction; an offer is anticipated in January.

Juve, meantime, may potentially offer Rabiot a new contract in order to include an escape clause for a specific sum, according to rumors.

In the Premier League, Newcastle will return to action on Sunday when they go to Sheffield United, and Manchester United will play at Burnley on Saturday.
