The contract ends in 2019 and, according to several media, the two members of Barça have been in the French capital to ask about the situation of the player.
A delegation from Barcelona led by the director of the football area, Pep Segura, and the technical secretary, Eric Abidal, is in Paris to try to sign Adrien Rabiot. This has been announced by several media outlets in Barcelona. Rabiot, player of the taste of Barça two seasons ago, ends contract in 2019. Paulinho’s departure has left Barça orphan, according to the technicians, of a physical player profile, with good air play and legs to go down to defend. Rabiot, who after the elimination against Real Madrid in the Champions League criticized some lack of ambition of the PSG, could have taken the decision not to renew and that would make it easier for Barça to negotiate a purchase.
Born 23 years ago, Rabiot was left out of the World Cup by surprise. Didier Deschamps had a choice and preferred two players like Matuidi and Tolisso, in addition to Lemar (although this is from another profile) to complete the list of 23. Second disappointment of Rabiot in a few months that could make him look at the future differently. At the moment, Pep Segura and Abidal are in Paris to know if the PSG is willing to sell. With only one year of contract pending, the Parisian club, normally hermetic, could open to negotiate.
