Barcelona set to sign Liverpool target on massive £170,000-a-week deal

The Guardian reports that Liverpool target Adrien Rabiot will join Barcelona in the summer on a free transfer.

The 23-year-old has fallen out of favour at Paris Saint-Germain as his contract is set to run out in the summer.

The report adds that the midfielder has agreed a signing on fee of €10m and a salary of £170,000-a-week over a period of five years.

The Frenchman is one of the best young players in the French league but for some reason, he has not been able to break into the national side.

Liverpool were in the race for the Frenchman as per ESPN (h/t Guardian) but it seems we will miss out on a decent player that Jurgen Klopp could have developed into a world beater.

The Reds are stacked well in midfield with the likes of Fabinho and Naby Keita slowly proving their value this season.

Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana aren’t guaranteed starters this season, which just goes to show how much competition there is in the side.

Liverpool might rue losing Rabiot but we should trust Klopp on his activity in the transfer windows.

The German has had several hits with the only major miss being Loris Karius, but we have been able to recoup a lot of money by selling players such as Dominic Solanke, Philippe Coutinho and Danny Ings in recent windows.
