Adrien Rabiot reportedly has little intention of returning to Juventus while his wages are reduced by 25% due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Adrien Rabiot is reportedly unwilling to return to training after Juventus reduced the wages of the first-team squad.

Given the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, club officials held talks with the senior squad in a bid to cut costs while football is suspended.

However, according to La Stampa, Rabiot has been left frustrated by the decision and intends to remain in France.

As it stands, the first-team squad are expected to reconvene later in May ahead of the potential resumption of Serie A next month.

While the situation could change, it is suggested that Rabiot does not want to be hit with a pay cut for four months, the time period agreed with the relevant parties.

The latest development comes at a time when the former Paris Saint-Germain man is being linked with a switch to Manchester United.
