Florentino Perez wants to bring Adrien Rabiot from PSG as a part of the makeover of the squad of Real Madrid. However, it seems like Barcelona has hijacked this deal.
Rabiot is known to be locked into a contract with PSG after he wanted parity of terms like the top earners such as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. Nonetheless, PSG has been unwilling to provide him with that kind of money. Thus, he has expressed that he is pretty happy to run down the present contract and leave PSG in summer.
In case PSG gets any transfer fee for this player then they will have to sell him in the transfer window of January. Florentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid is planning to overhaul the old squad in Real Madrid and he considers the midfielder from PSG to be a perfect option to European champions.
Nonetheless, it appears like the lack of solid project at the club along with instability of the managerial level had made Barcelona to steal the deal at the last moment. It has opened up a line of communication with players. It has also been suggested by the Spanish outlet that the deal is almost towards completion and that Rabiot is going to sign with Barcelona in the next week.
This comes just after the announcement of Barcelona about the addition of Jeison Murillo, the center back from Valencia in the loan deal of six months.
