Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot has now gone on strike because his wages was reduced by £7million due to the coronavirus crisis, MySportDab reports.
The playmaker is currently in France where he’s in self isolation after football in Italy was suspended on March 9th.
But According to the Daily Mail, Rabiot has refused to return for training in Italy due to a disagreement with the club.
Rabiot signed for Juve last summer but his future at the club looks uncertain amid links with various European clubs.
MySportDab understands Rabiot will stay in France in a ‘strike’ against Juventus after they cut £7m from his £28m wages.
In March, Juventus players agreed for their wages to be refused for four months’, which is worth like £80m to the club.
Juventus have now resumed training at their Continassa complex, with players taking part in individual drills as they practise social distancing regulations.
But Rabiot remains unhappy with the wage cut.
Rabiot is backed by his mother Veronique, who is also his football agent.
Juventus have declined to comment on the situation for now.
