Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United have all been dealt a serious transfer blow as reports claim Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, Adrien Rabiot, has opted to join Italian side, AS Roma.
The 19-year-old has been wanted by the English trio for months now, but after failing to agree terms with PSG regarding a new contract, the teenager is now set to leave the French capital and appears to have chosen the Serie A side.
Rabiot’s contract expires next Summer and with no plans to sign an extension, Laurent Blanc is keen to sell him in January so that the club can raise some funds for him, rather than see him leave on a free.
According to reports, Rabiot has already agreed a deal in principle with Rudi Garcia’s side, and will complete the move in June, once his current deal expires in France.
Garcia has already admitted that the club are keeping track of Rabiot’s contract saga at PSG, and it’s believed that the Italian side have offered the starlet a contract worth £4million-a-year.
