RMC: Arsenal and Barcelona lead the race to sign Adrien Rabiot
According to RMC report, apart from Arsenal, Barcelona are leading the race for the 23-year-old midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who's open to parting with PSG this summer for two reasons: the ignorance to wage increase requests and changing the playing position.
France international's current wage is €3 million per year. The report claims that Barcelona have presumably offered him a €7.2 million per year.
The 23-year-old's contract with the former Unai Emery's club runs until 2019. Back in April, France international has spoken to Canal+ where he revealed he's not sure about where he want's to continue his future. But PSG don't want to lose such player, like Rabiot.
Paris United have reported earlier today that the player has met up with PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique to discuss all requests and demands, as well as his desire to leave the French club.
Apart from Arsenal, our Premier League rivals in the name of Tottenham led by Mauricio Pochettino are also interested in Rabiot as Spurs are determined to replace Mousa Dembele.
