Adrien Rabiot appears to already have his back at Chelsea, with reports suggesting the French international has agreed to join La Liga toppers Barcelona next year.
The troubled Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has found life really frustrating under Thomas Tuchel at the Parc de Princes.
The French club dropped a deal, which the 23-year-old shoved away, hinting he is raring to pack his bags and leave the outfit.
Premier League giants Chelsea were formerly linked with a hunt for the midfielder, an interest that has not quenched. But the new reports making the rounds in Spain, claiming he has accepted to join Barcelona who are keen on building a robust centre,leaves a host of interested suitors vying for his signature dripping with regret.
Mundo Deportivo confessed that the box-to-box star will be on a plane to Barcelona to continue his career.
Rabiot’s contract with the club is set to expire at the end of the season.
Talks to seal his move have begun moving through gears as it is understood former Barcelona defender Eric Abidal travelled to Paris to carry out negotiations over agreeing to join the club.
It is very likely a pre-contractual agreement will be penned down on New Year’s day.
