Man United, Everton & Chelsea among clubs in talks with Adrien Rabiot

A trio of Premier League clubs are currently locked in negotiations with Adrien Rabiot and mother-agent Veronique over a transfer, according to the reliable Soccer Link.

PSG contract rebel

Speculation surrounding the future of gifted 24-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 at the beginning of next month.

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.

The previous runaway favourites to sign Rabiot were 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 never arrived.

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

Premier League bound?

As such, this has since opened the door once more for all other interested parties, with an update on the race for the Frenchman’s services having this evening emerged online.

As per Soccer Link, regarded as reliable when it comes to transfer news, all of Manchester United, Chelsea, Everton, Inter Milan and Juventus are currently in negotiations with Rabiot’s mother-agent Veronique over a transfer.

A decision on his future, however, will not be made until the end of the month.

This comes amid shock claims that the arrival of sporting director Leonardo, who is set to be appointed by PSG imminently, will see talks opened over an extension to Rabiot’s contract, in spite of everything that has transpired between player and club over the last 12 months:
