Arsenal’s £20m target missed training, made fake excuses, club preparing to sell
The situation of Adrien Rabiot is getting bad to worse at PSG. The highly talented midfielder has made his mind clear of leaving the French champions and has rejected several offers from PSG recently.
It has reached a point where PSG feel the time has come to sell him. Arsenal, Monaco, Juventus and Tottenham are thought to be interested parties but they were told to dish out £20m in order to secure his services.
Money probably is one of the factors why the youngster is seeking a move to a top European club, but most importantly, he wants to join a club where he would get regular game time under his belt.
According to L’Equipe today, Rabiot is showing all the signs that his heart lies elsewhere. He was about to join the group on Monday for training, but he skipped that and gave ‘excuse’ that he missed the flight.
The following day, he arrived late, much to the annoyance of technical staffs. When asked to participate in a training session, he refused to do it saying he has a persistent pain on his foot.
It has become clear to everyone that is making up excuses. PSG are willing to sell but not many clubs can afford to gamble on the price tag set by PSG. The player has only one year left on his contract and at best PSG can sell him around €10m only.
