However, very prominent during the preparation matches, Kalimuendo would have caught the eye of Christophe Galtier who does not seem very inclined to part with him.
Placed on the transfer list, Adrien Rabiot should finally “benefit” from Paul Pogba’s first big injury since his return to Juve. The latter could be sidelined for the next two months, which would have pushed the leaders of Juventus to finally want to keep Adrien Rabiot, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport. Announced in discussions with Paris, Lyon or Premier League clubs, Rabiot had nevertheless been excluded from the Turinese internship in the USA.
While a return to Leipzig was mentioned, Timo Werner could continue his career at Juve. According Fabrizio Romano, the Turinese and Chelsea are in discussions for the loan of the German international. The Blues no longer rely on the 26-year-old striker and are said to be keen on loaning him out.
