Arsenal & Barcelona lead the race for Adrien Rabiot

RMC report this evening that Arsenal and Barcelona currently lead the race for French midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who has told PSG that he is open to leaving the club this summer, especially if his salary demands are not met and his requirement to play as a box-to-box midfield player is not met.

Rabiot currently earns €3m a year at PSG, with reliable reports indicating that Barcelona are offering the Frenchman €7.2m a year instead and FCB director Éric Abidal having been in Paris earlier this week to make a formal enquiry to PSG for the player, during a visit which he also used to meet with the Rabiot clan.

PSG absolutely want to keep the player, but with one-year left on his current deal remaining, Adrien Rabiot holds all the cards.

Paris United reported today that Rabiot has held a meeting with PSG Sporting Director Antero Henrique and has reiterated his demands, but that his priority is to remain at the club.
