The Serie A side are set to complete the signing of Adrien Rabiot after the midfielder arrived in Turin on the day his PSG contract expires.

Adrien Rabiot has arrived in Turin to complete his move to Juventus. The midfielder is set to complete a free transfer to the Serie A champions, with his contract at Paris Saint-Germain expiring on Sunday.

Rabiot picks Juventus

Rabiot, 24, was linked to a host of leading European clubs after a contract dispute contributed to him being frozen out of the first-team picture at the Parc des Princes last season.

Juventus publish Rabiot video

Juventus tweeted a short video clip of Rabiot getting into a car after landing in Italy.

The Bianconeri will begin life under Maurizio Sarri in 2019-20 and the former Napoli and Chelsea boss will have his midfield stocks boosted by the arrival of Aaron Ramsey, also on a free, after the Wales international opted to end an 11-year association with Arsenal.

Juventus active in the market

Uruguay midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur penned a new five-year deal at the Allianz Stadium last week.

A big money move from Juventus to secure highly rated Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt has also been mooted.

Reports have claimed Juve are preparing to complete an imminent deal for the Netherlands centre-back.

Rabiot to take advantage of Italian tax break

Rabiot will be able to take advantage of a new Italian tax break, which will see half his salary exempt from tax. The new regime, which was approved this week by Italian legislators, effectively makes foreign players who move to Italy much cheaper for Italian clubs, as players are paid net of tax, with the club picking up the tax bill on behalf of the player. Under the new rules, Juventus would pay 3.77 million euros of tax on a salary of 10 million euros, compared to 7.54 million without the exemption, a saving of 3.77 million euros.
