Reports in Spanish outlet Sport claim that PSG star Adrien Rabiot is set for showdown talks with PSG to determine his future.
The French midfielder has been continuously linked with a move away from Paris, with Liverpool being rumoured to be interested in the 23-year-old’s services.
Rabiot’s relationship with PSG has turned sour, and he has not featured in the team since December of last year and has also recently been barred from accessing the club’s training facilities as disputes around a new contract continued.
In a further twist in this tale, Rabiot has now been backed by The president of the National Union of Professional Footballers of France (UNFP), Philippe Piat, who told Sport that the UNFP would file lawsuits against PSG for “not respecting the provisions of his contract, and another against Antero Henrique, the sports director, for moral harassment.”
Piat added: “PSG does what it wants with its player. Things continue to get worse because he did not want to renew with the club.
“What Rabiot wants is to reach the end of his contract, so respect him, and then go play elsewhere.”
This adds further fuel to the fire that Rabiot is set to leave the French capital this summer when his contact at PSG expires.
Would Rabiot fit in at Liverpool?
Liverpool have been linked with Rabiot for some time now, and there’s no doubt that he would an exciting addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad and would further bolster his choices in midfield.
He would make the ideal replacement for Adam Lallana, who may also be on his way out of the Anfield exit door this summer, and could be a long-term replacement for James Milner who is in the twilight of his career at the age of 33.
One big question that does remain, however, is over his attitude. If this saga with PSG spells anything, it’s that Rabiot can have a bit of an attitude. We know that this type of behaviour doesn’t go down well with Klopp.
If this hurdle can be overcome, he’d be a great signing for Liverpool. Rabiot would bring with him a wealth of experience and class despite his young age.
