Paris Saint Germain’s midfield sensation Adrien Rabiot must be sold in January, with the French club fearful of losing their young star on a free transfer at the end of the season when his contract expires, as reported by the Daily Express.
This news will probably put Manchester United and Chelsea on alert, who could sign a player with considerable potential for well less than his market value with a January move for the player.
With his contract set to expire in the summer of 2015, PSG are not keen to let their a young star leave for free. With Rabiot rejecting an extension, they have to sell the player in January if they wish to make any money back on him.
Both Chelsea and Man Utd will face competition from Italian side Roma, however, who could probably offer the youngster first team football more immediately. Given that the player does not seem fascinated by money, that will play a huge factor.
His mother, Veronique Rabiot, who is also his agent, said: “We do not make decisions based on financial criteria.
“They are important, of course, but the priority is the sports project.”
