Premier League clubs offered options but his choice Barcelona. The French player, who has shown excellent form at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, reportedly favors a move to Spanish powerhouse Barcelona despite getting proposals from Premier League clubs, according to SPORT. Since the player left PSG for free in 2019, the Catalan club has been interested in signing him. Rabiot ultimately decided to join Juventus. The Old Lady has scheduled for Rabiot’s contract to expire in the summer of 2019. He has once more established himself as a prized asset in the transfer market due to his outstanding achievements in his first FIFA World Cup.
The Frenchman has contributed significantly to Didier Deschamps’ team. Rabiot has excelled in the midfield while Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante have been out, assisting Les Bleus in reaching the championship game. However, Rabiot was unwell and was unable to attend the FIFA World Cup semifinal. In an effort to heal quickly so that he would be available if France advanced to the tournament final in Qatar, he didn’t even travel toward the stadium with the team.
Deschamps’ team defeated Morocco 2-0 to go to the World Cup final, where they will play Argentina on Sunday. France has the opportunity to win back-to-back World Cup trophies and make history by doing so for the first time since 1962. A 2014 FIFA World Cup star that Xavi wanted in Barcelona ultimately chose Real Madrid. During the 2014 FIFA World Cup, a comparable issue occurred. Throughout the competition, James Rodriguez was among the top players. Six goals were scored by the Colombian, one of which stunned Uruguay in the Round of 16.
Pushing for a transfer, Xavi Hernandez wanted to watch the player play for the Catalan team. However, Rodriguez ultimately made the switch from Monaco to Real Madrid. Rodriguez’s stint in the Spanish capital got off to a promising start, but he never reached his full potential there. Recently, Xavi said to Marca; “James Rodriguez playing for Real Madrid rather than Barcelona makes me regret it. James has consistently displayed talent and quality, scoring outstanding goals from close range and long range.”
Only James Rodriguez in recent memory has managed to score in each game his team participated in a World Cup competition. Until their elimination against Brazil in the World Cup quarterfinals, he scored in every one of Colombia’s five games. Rodriguez is presently a player with Olympiacos of Greece. Jules Koundé and Ousmane Dembele from the Catalan club’s current team will compete in the World Cup final for France against Lionel Messi, the club’s all-time leading scorer, who will play for Argentina.
