The summer transfer window has closed, but market maneuvers do not stop. Milan remain very interested in PSG’s Adrien Rabiot. The player’s contract expires in June 2019 and the Rossoneri are set to challenge Juventus and Barcelona for the signing of the French midfielder, with Inter ready to fit in.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Rabiot is looking to seize the best opportunity for his career. The player currently earns €2 million per year and refused a contract extension with a pay rise to €5 million per year.
Milan were already interested in the midfielder this summer, but it was a difficult operation considering UEFA restrictions as well as PSG’s high demand for one of their pillar players.
However, it must be noted, that current Milan director Leonardo has a great influence on the Rabiot family. As a matter of fact, when the Brazilian worked for PSG, he defined the current contractual agreement between the two sides.
Leonardo is aware that finding an agreement with PSG is nearly impossible. The road to go is that of dealing with the Rabiot family and trying to secure the player on a free transfer next summer, which would also be very beneficial to stay within Financial Fair Play rules.
