According to Le Parisien, Tottenham and Paris Saint-Germain could agree a deal for Adrien Rabiot. The French international’s contract at the Parc des Princes expires next summer and he’s yet to put pen to paper on an extension. Rabiot could yet leave PSG as a result of failed negotiations, handing the likes of Tottenham Hotspur a chance to procure his signature.
The report states that Spurs and the Parisians are ‘friends’ after doing business that saw Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura make the switch from the French capital to the English equivalent, but Tottenham’s pursuit for Rabiot is far too ambitious to ever be successful. The 23-year-old may not be keen on a move to Spurs and could have wage demands that are too lofty to be met.
Rabiot rose from the youth ranks to the PSG first-team in 2012 and has gone on to make 223 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating 40 goals. The midfielder has won four Ligue 1 titles, four French League Cups and three French Cups in his six years at the club, but his future may now lie elsewhere.
With Mousa Dembele and Vincent Wanyama being linked with exits next summer, Mauricio Pochettino may soon be in the market for a stellar midfield, but it’s hard to see the Londoners landing Rabiot.
