The beginning of the year signals the start of potential negotiations for players whose contract end in June and Barcelona are now free to discuss a deal with Adrien Rabiot. Paris Saint-Germain have declared that they will not renew the Frenchman’s contract, as the player is no longer interested in remaining at the club.
The Blaugrana tried to sign the player last summer and are now eager to push for his acquisition, while several European teams have also expressed their interest. Barcelona remain in pole position for the player and are eager to be delicate with the situation to avoid clashing with PSG, who have already shown what they are capable of in the transfer market – particularly in Neymar’s case.
However, the Catalans refuse to rule out a winter move for the France international, if his current club sets a reasonable price in January to avoid losing him on a free transfer.
