Rabiot a mix of Pogba, Vidal and Marchisio claims Buffon

Rabiot a mix of Pogba, Vidal and Marchisio claims Buffon

Gianluigi Buffon has lavished praise on the "incredible" Adrien Rabiot, claiming the midfielder is a combination of Paul Pogba, Arturo Vidal and Claudio Marchisio.

Goalkeeper Buffon saw at close quarters what Rabiot is capable of during their time together at Paris Saint-Germain, though the latter was frozen out since mid-December after failing to agree on a new contract.

With his deal set to expire, the France international confirmed earlier this month that he has held talks with Juventus over a move to Italy.

Buffon believes the Serie A champions would be getting a player who offers similar traits to some famous former Juve midfielders, including Rabiot's compatriot Pogba.

Fantastic

"He is a fantastic mix, he has the physical strength of Pogba, who is like a wardrobe, has the personality of Vidal and potentially the dynamism of Marchisio," Buffon said in an in-depth interview with Corriere dello Sport.

"He is incredible, extremely strong, he needs to improve his timing when approaching the opponent's penalty area but he can become a player with 10 goals per season. He's also a good boy and a great team-mate."

If Rabiot joins Juve, he could be working under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri, who is expected to be named as the club's new boss.
