Juventus have announced that Adrien Rabiot has signed a new contract with the Serie A giants, with Liverpool officially missing out on the midfielder.

The Old Lady confirmed on their official website that the French international had signed a one-year extension after Fabrizio Romano posted on Twitter that a deal had been agreed between Juventus and Rabiot, much to Liverpool’s dismay.

The 28-year-old midfielder enjoyed arguably his best season ever as Rabiot played a key role for France at the 2022 FIFA World Cup and was Juventus’ best player in a year that saw the Bianonceri entangled with yet another major scandal.

As a result, Rabiot was expected to leave Juventus when his contract ended this month, with Liverpool one of the sides chasing the midfielder. However, the Frenchman has now made a stunning u-turn on his future, and the Reds could be gutted that they missed out on the former PSG man.

Rabiot could have been a dream signing for Liverpool this summer

Lauded by pundits as being ‘sensational’ last season, Rabiot has transformed completely in the last 12 months. And for Liverpool, the midfielder could have been a dream signing for Jurgen Klopp had the 28-year-old opted to leave Juventus this summer.

Indeed, Rabiot showcased form that made the midfielder one of the best players to watch in Italy, and whilst Liverpool had little chance of signing the Juventus star to begin with, missing out on the Serie A superstar will still sting for the Reds given what they’re looking to add to the squad this summer.
