Adrien Rabiot agrees pre-contract deal with AS Roma

Published 1 Comments

AS Roma look set to beat Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Adrien Rabiot after the Paris Saint-Germain starlet allegedly reached a pre-contract agreement with the Serie 'A' giants.

The Sunday People reports that the 19-year-old midfielder will move to Italy, and in doing so will disappoint a host of different admirers in the Premier League.

Rabiot made his first-team breakthrough at Parc des Princes last season but after failing to agree a new contract looks set to leave the Ligue 1 champions on a free transfer next summer.

Premier League interest

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been the most heavily linked suitor, but his hopes of luring the PSG youngster to the Emirates have now been dealt a significant blow following the latest developments regarding Rabiot's prospective switch to Stadio Olimpico.

Jose Mourinho and Manuel Pellegrini have also been mooted as admirers, however the talented teenager appears to have shunned all interest from England's top-flight to link up with Rudi Garcia in the eternal city.

The Daily Star even reported last week that Louis van Gaal was planning a late bid for the France U21 international, but his arrival at Old Trafford no longer seems possible either.

In-demand star

Spurs complete the quintet of Premier League clubs set for disappointment in their pursuit of Rabiot with Mauricio Pochettino now also needing to turn attention to alternative targets when the transfer window reopens in January.

It's not yet clear how much money Rabiot will earn at AS Roma, but earlier this month The Express reported that the player was demanding a salary of at least £2.5 million per year, which equates to wages of around £48,000-a-week.
