Manchester City and have registered their interest in Juventus midfielder, Adrien Rabiot, according to the player’s agent.
It is believed the Premier League giants are interested in signing the 25-year-old during the summer transfer window.
However, Rabiot’s representative has said that it is unlikely he will leave Juventus this summer after finding his feet with the Serie A side during the 2020-2021 campaign.
Rabiot’s agent told Italian newspaper Tuttosport: ‘The Frenchman is on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City goal list.
‘But he will not leave Juventus.’
The Juventus midfielder had been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League last summer after an underwhelming first campaign in Turin.
Carlo Ancelotti reportedly made several moves in 2020 to link up with the 25-year-old France international – who broke through into the Paris Saint-Germain first-team under the Italian in 2012 – but was unsuccessful on each occasion.
Rabiot was reportedly open to a move to the English top-flight last year, with Manchester United also having been linked with him in the last 12 months.
As a result, Premier League leader Manchester City have named Rabiot as a potential transfer target for the summer.
Pep Guardiola may look to sign Rabiot as a long-term replacement for City midfielder, Fernandinho.
Rabiot has also made an impact on the international scene, having picked up 11 French caps so far.
However, the 25-year-old did miss out on the opportunity to represent France at the 2018 World Cup.
