Liverpool, Tottenham & Man City in Adrien Rabiot talks – Paris United

As per a report from Paris United this evening, a trio of Premier League clubs are currently in negotiations over the signing of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

PSG contract rebel

Speculation surrounding the future of gifted 23-year-old Rabiot has been rampant for some time now.

The Frenchman has refused to commit to a contract extension with boyhood club PSG, with his current deal at the Parc des Princes set to expire in the summer.

Unsurprisingly, this has resulted in a whole host of European heavyweights expressing an interest in Rabiot’s services.

However, despite the marauding midfielder having been free to sign a pre-contract agreement with another club since the beginning of the year, and been banished to the Parc des Princes stands since the middle of December, Rabiot’s future, at present, remains very much up in the air.

Barcelona links

Of the clubs to have been touted as potential destinations for Rabiot, the most-persistently linked have been Spanish champions Barcelona.

The Blaugrana were even rumoured to have clinched an agreement with the Frenchman in January, though official confirmation of any such deal has not yet been forthcoming.

And reports over recent weeks have since widely-varied regarding just how interested Barca remain in securing Rabiot’s signature.

AS suggested last month that the board at the Camp Nou had come to the decision to bring to an end their chase of the midfielder.

Le Parisien, though, since claimed that Rabiot himself remains firmly intent on making the move to Catalunya.

Premier League bound?

But, as per the latest update courtesy of Paris United tonight, Barcelona appear to have taken a back seat to a trio of Premier League clubs in the race for the 23-year-old.

All of Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool are said to be in talks with both Rabiot and mother-agent Veronique.

The Frenchman’s wage demands and hefty requested signing-on bonus, though, could prove problematic:
