Manchester United can benefit from a points deduction penalty now being confirmed against Juventus. Continue Reading>>>>

A big decision has been made in Italy with Juventus handed a 10 point deduction. The Federal Court of Appeals confirmed the decision on Monday night, Sky Sports reported.

Juventus had been initially handed a 15 points deduction, which was later revoked, and now a 10 points deduction has been imposed. Continue Reading>>>>

The penalty is a result of an investigation into Juventus’ transfer dealings.

Adrien Rabiot to Manchester United
Over the weekend, Italian newspaper Tuttosport reported that Adrien Rabiot‘s future at Juventus could hinge on the result of the court decision.

Rabiot’s contract expires this summer and French newspaper L’Equipe has reported United boss Erik ten Hag has held talks with the midfielder over a summer move.

Juventus have not given up on convincing him to stay, however, their task is made a lot harder after this 10 point deduction.

The penalty pushes Juventus down to seventh place in the Serie A table, a defeat at Empoli last night was another blow.

Previously they had been occupying a Champions League spot. As it stands, they can no longer mathematically finish inside the top four.

Last summer Manchester United held talks over Adrien Rabiot, and one of the reasons a move broke down, in addition to wages, was a lack of Champions League football. Juventus did have this last season, before finishing third in their group and dropping into the Europa League.

Rabiot has been a shining light in a poor season for Juventus, scoring a career best 11 goals from midfield.

As highlighted by Athletic journalist David Ornstein via Five, Rabiot may be a player Manchester United can move on now, despite takeover uncertainty, because he will be available on a free transfer.

A top four finish would have made it easier for Juventus to try and win Rabiot around for a new deal.

Now it is Manchester United who hold the cards, with just one point required from two games to secure Champions League football for next season.

With Marcel Sabitzer expected to cost around £20 million, Manchester United are likely to see Rabiot as a cheaper alternative.
