- Barcelona have been looking all summer for a central-midfielder and currently their top target in Adrien Rabiot
- The La Liga champions are currently waiting on Rabiot’s decision to sign a contract extension or not at PSG
- In order to keep the French midfielder, PSG have offered Rabiot a bumper new deal
It’s no secret that Barcelona has been searching for a ball-playing central midfielder all summer, someone who is able to create chances and build-up play from anywhere on the pitch, something in the mould of Xavi Hernandez. Their current number one target Adrien Rabiot is stalling on signing a new deal at PSG, keeping his doors to Barcelona open.
The latest FC Barcelona Transfer News indicates that French Champions PSG are willing to offer Rabiot a bumper contract extension to convince him to stay in Paris. The French international who was shockingly left out of the French squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and has a contract at PSG till the end of 2018-2019 season.
FC Barcelona Transfer News: A bumper contract extension on the table for Adrien Rabiot
As per FC Barcelona Latest Transfer News in Sports, PSG are going to offer him a contract extension till 2022 with a salary of around €550,000 per month, amounting a total of €8m per year. This is a huge increase from his current contract but one that can be matched by Barcelona if he does indeed decide to refuse the extension at Parc des Princes.
Barcelona’s sporting director Eric Abidal has intensified his efforts to get in contact with the players and his representatives. Apart from the salary, Barcelona will also offer a better option for Rabiot in terms of sporting reasons. A move to Barca will be a forward move in his career, with the opportunity of more game time in the central midfield region. He already has the confidence of manager Ernesto Valverde, who is himself working to get this deal through as soon as possible.
Barcelona Transfer News: PSG will look towards Kante, if Rabiot does indeed leave
If Adrien Rabiot refuses to sign a new contract at PSG, N’Golo Kante is one player who is being considered as his replacement, if the PSG’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi can convince Chelsea president Roman Abramovic to sell his prized asset this summer, who himself is on the verge of getting a bumper pay rise from the Blues.
As per the Latest FC Barcelona Transfer Rumours, If Rabiot refuses to sign a contract extension at PSG, an offer of around €40m should be sufficient to prise the midfielder away from Parc des Princes. For PSG, the only hope is that Rabiot follows in the footstep of Verrati, who also committed to the French Champions last summer after a lot of speculation.
