Goal: Adrien Rabiot's agent working on a Barcelona move despite Chelsea links
• Chelsea are allegedly after the Frenchman but he prefers a move to Spain, as per Goal expert Robin Bairner
• Several other clubs have reportedly been interested in the midfielder, however, it's unlikely that he will end up in England
• Moreover, the 23-year-old could even stay at PSG as the new coach, Thomas Tuchel values him a lot
Bairner explains the Rabiot situation: "The player has rejected two contract offers from the club, turning the latest down in mid-August, when he rebuffed a €7.2 million-per-year offer from the Parc des Princes side.
"This was a slap in the face for PSG as they bowed to his request of a three-year deal – a shorter contract than habitually offered by the powerhouse club. For his part, Rabiot does not want to miss out on a potential switch away.
However, the Goal expert admits the Frenchman is likely to move to Barcelona: "Barca have been one of the sides to the forefront of transfer rumours for much of the summer, notably hitting the headlines in August in the aftermath of Rabiot’s rejection of PSG's terms.
"Reports state that the Camp Nou side were willing to offer him €10m per season – more 30% higher than PSG’s bid. The Catalan giants are his agent and mother Veronique's preferred destination for her son, and the location that she is doing her best to push him towards."
