Paris Saint-Germain will have to do without midfielder Adrien Rabiot at the turn of the year, after efforts to make him stay have proved fruitless.
Rabiot is keen on leaving the French outfit, and will not be out of offers, as he’s been crowded by a host of big clubs waiting to nab him in January.
Rabiot will be allowed to negotiate with interested clubs in January. Reports floating about say Paris Saint-Germain will hold a key meeting over the Frenchman’s future nextweek. This has certainly put some clubs chasing after him on the balls of their feet.
Paris Saint-Germain couldn’t hammer out a good deal for the player and will look to cash in on him in January, rather than lose him for nothing next summer, when his contract with them will be terminated.
Barcelona are in pole position for the player as suggested by a Catalan outlet.
English publication the Metro reports that Liverpool have an interest in Rabiot. The Reds have a midfield situation at the moment and patching it January will win them plenty of points, and keep them closer to toppers Manchester City.
The Reds are without Naby Keita and Fabinho still has cold feet. Jordan Henderson has been ruled out for a quick return. Getting Rabiot makes a lot of sense, but stealing him before Barcelona does is the real test for Jurgen Klopp.
