Adrien Rabiot has reflected on his potential move to Manchester United that fell through in the summer.

In their search for a midfielder with a move for Frenkie de Jong stalling, Man Utd moved to sign Rabiot from Juventus.

The two clubs reached an agreement but the deal ultimately collapsed with the player unable to agree personal terms with the Premier League side.

Since then, Rabiot has been a key player for Juventus, starting 11 of their 15 league matches and five of their six Champions League games.

Man Utd went on to sign Casemiro from Real Madrid and have made a solid start to the season, sitting fifth in the Premier League with a game in hand on the two sides directly above them.

Looking back, Rabiot has no regrets about ultimately staying in Turin.

"It's true, I had a chance to try Premier League experience; but staying at Juventus was the best choice", he told La Gazzetta.

Rabiot's contract with Juventus expires at the end of the season, but admitted he doesn't know if he wants to stay at the Italian club yet though and is not thinking about his future at the moment.

"I don't think about the future, I'm not in a rush about my contract," he added.
