Rabiot to PSG, the return?


By: Manu Tournoux

Adrien Rabiot is at the end of his contract this summer and, at 28 years old, the French international midfielder will inevitably be in high demand. Since his departure from Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, a lot has happened for the former Titi, both back in favor with the French team and in the minds of the leaders of the biggest European teams. If Juventus Turin, where he has been playing for 5 years now, will try to convince him to stay, other posh and ambitious teams will negotiate with Rabiot and his representative, his mother Véronique. Among them, we find… PSG. According to PSG Inside, contacts have been established – or re-established, if we remember the stormy relations between the Rabiot clan and the Parisian board – between the two parties with a view to a return next season.

If for the moment the discussions have not led to the slightest agreement and the positions, particularly with regard to bonuses and salaries, are distant, Paris would not have given up on getting ahead of the competition on this issue. The very probable departure of Kylian Mbappé for Real Madrid and the payroll generated by his signing in the Spanish capital, in addition to possible compensation, will allow PSG to recruit. This does not mean that we should expect transfers for high sums and players at the end of their contract but well paid. Adrien Rabiot earns 7 million euros per season in Turin, which makes him one of the best paid players in Serie A. To convince him to come back, and at the same time not discover the Premier League, which was one of his long-standing personal goals, we will have to offer him at least that.

Rabiot, a divisive player

Rabiot remains in all cases a particularly divisive player in the eyes of Parisian supporters, some accusing him of having entered into conflict with his training club and of not having been irreproachable, while others hold the Ile-de-France team 100% responsible. % of what happened at the time.

In the meantime, Adrien Rabiot will be in Clairefontaine for the next gathering of the French team next week, with a view to facing Germany and Chile in preparation for Euro 2024.
