Rabiot’s future is up in the air at Parc de Princes and Interests for Paris Saint-Germain star continues to pile up.
Negotiations between the midfielder and PSG look stalled and Rabiot could be set to leave the club on a free this summer.
Chelsea have the star under their radar and are set to snap him up if the Ligue One superpowers attempt to tie him down turns to a bust.
But Blues will have to cough up a sum of 10 million euros per year, an equivalent of 170,000-per-week as wages for the star.
As per reports floating in Italy, hints of him dropping out of the French club and seeking regular games elsewhere is bugging and the player has named his asking fee.
Rabiot is fine player and the battle for his services has emerged in Italy too, as Serie A heavyweights Juventus, Manchester City, Liverpool and AC Milan have reportedly joined the race to sign him.
Sarri already increased the Blues rank this season, adding Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.
But the tempting signs that Rabiot could be brought in on a free in January when he would be allowed to talk to other clubs is too luring an opportunity to miss.
Rabiot has just few months left on his contract at Parc de Princes. Meanwhile, the Blues are keen on signing another sensation in Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa.
Serie A duo Milan and Juventus could be pipped to the signing of the 20-year-old in January.
