Liverpool have been handed a major boost in their hopes of signing Adrien Rabiot. Antero Henrique, Paris Saint-Germain’s sporting director, has confirmed that the midfielder will not be signing a new deal with the team.
The player is out of a contract at the end of the season, and the Metro reports that PSG and the player have been in negotiations for a few months.
“At this point, no.
“It was a decision made by the club following a meeting I had with the player.
“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, at the end of his contract.”
The PSG sporting director further claimed that this decision would affect Rabiot’s time at the club, and he would be benched for an “indefinite period”.
Henrique certainly was not best pleased with the situation as he lashed out on Rabiot’s agent too, claiming the club had been “misled”, and called the situation as “disrespectful” for the fans.
The 23-year-old Rabiot is one of the brightest midfielders in Ligue 1, and he would be an incredible signing on the cheap or on a free.
The report claims that PSG could decide to sell the midfielder for a cut-price deal in the winter window rather than lose him for nothing next season.
Liverpool are currently stacked with options in the midfield, but we can also do with someone of Rabiot’s ability in the side.
