Pari Saint-Germain (PSG) fall out and Manchester United target, Adrien Rabiot snubbed an invitation to attend the club’s title celebration with his teammates which is seen to be as a result of his strained relationship with his employer an in the is not interested in a stay at the club anymore.
The French midfielder is set to leave the club on a free transfer in the summer with Manchester United showing interests in bringing him to Old Trafford in a move to strengthen their midfield.
Formerly linked with a move to Arsenal in the past, the midfield star refused to renew his contract in December and was subsequently ruled out of all competitions.
With a major fall-out between the 24-year-old and the club, he declined to attend title celebrations with his team-mates as they celebrated winning Ligue 1.
Instead, Rabiot was pictured holding the Ligue 1 trophy a number of days later, posting a caption signalling his involvement in six titles in the last seven.
His invitation to the title celebration party and failure to attend signals a very big rift between him and the club which is good news to Unite who have shown their interests and are most likely going to have him on board at a time when they are facing a hard time in the league having finished out the Champions League window.
Rabiot was suspended by PSG back in March after heading to a nightclub after their humiliating Champions League defeat to Manchester United and liking a post from Patrice Evra celebrating the result.
His mother and agent recently blasted his treatment by the club, “The president [Al-Khelaifi] has made a completely unfair decision and everybody knows that” she told Agence France Presse.
“By doing this, he has instilled a poison in his team, which has done its work over the past five months Nasser has broken his own team up because he forgot about the human factor.
“When you make decisions in life, there are short, medium and long-term consequences. Failing to understand that when you are the president of a football club is to not know football, nor football players. Above all, it shows that you do not know men.”
Rabiot is one of a number of players wanted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this summer as part of his summer rebuild as he plans to implement his overhaul plan. He could also be a shrewd addition for Arsenal as he considers a reunion with former manager Unai Emery, who is still looking to strengthen on a budget.
Barcelona is understood to have ended their long-standing interest in the French international, although he will not be short of offers when his contract in the French capital officially ends.
