Adrien Rabiot is one step closer to completing his move to the Camp Nou after an agreement has been reached between the Paris Saint-Germain star and Barcelona.
That’s according to Paris United, with the 23-year-old Frenchman’s representatives agreeing to a five-year contract and roughly €10m a year in salary.
The midfielder, who has been a longstanding target for the reigning La Liga champions, will have a €10m signing bonus.
Rabiot will be out of contract at the end of the season, but it would seem that the Ligue 1 club might be willing to let the PSG rebel to leave the Parc des Princes in January.
PSG sporting director Antero Henrique confirmed in December that Rabiot’s future at the club was effectively over.
“At this point, no. It was a decision made by the club following a meeting I had with the player,” he told Yahoo! Sports.
“The player informed me that he would not sign a contract and that he wanted to leave the club by being free at the end of the season.
“For the player, this will have a very clear consequence: he will remain on the bench for an indefinite period.
“Several months ago, we had positive exchanges with his representative in the perspective that he remains at the club and signs a new contract.
“We also accepted all the conditions of the player related to the sports field. We had discussed these conditions so that he would stay with us for years to come.
“But, unfortunately, from now on, the discussions have totally stopped.
“I must add that this situation is disrespectful for both the club and the fans.
“Especially from a player who has played under our colours from the academy to the first team and a player who has always received the full support of the club.”
Should PSG allow Rabiot to leave in January or wait until the summer?
