Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot snubbed a lucrative new contract offer earlier this month, which French publication Le10 Sport have today revealed was worth a monthly salary of €250,000.

Rabiot would have secured himself a lofty wage of €62,500-a-week (or €3m-a-year) by putting pen to paper on fresh terms at the Parc des Princes, but is unhappy with a lack of playing time and has alerted a whole host of top European clubs by snubbing that deal to keep his options very much open.

The 19-year-old is reportedly being tracked by Premier League giants Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur plus Serie A sides Juventus and Roma, and is free to talks terms with any of those teams over a free transfer from January onwards.

What would Rabiot offer?

It's no surprise that PSG's impressive academy graduate is attracting attention across the continent.

The France Under-21 international has all the technical qualities to play as a deep-lying central midfielder, or even further forward in an advanced playmaker role.

Competition for places at PSG is very strong but Rabiot has still featured 56 times for the first team over the last two-and-bit seasons, although the ambitious talent clearly wants much more.

Where will Rabiot end up?

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is thought to be a big fan of Rabiot's and is even considering a January bid of around £5.6m to beat off stiff competition for the midfielder's services, but Serie A still looks his most likely destination.

Rabiot is asking PSG for a salary of €5m-a-year before he'll even consider staying at PSG to fight for his place, with Roma now leading the race to make sure Laurent Blanc loses one of his brightest young prospects next summer.

Roma coach Rudi Garcia believes he has the pulling power to get this deal done, although reports of interest from Man United are new and could yet throw a spanner in the works.

Expect some movement on this front in the January transfer window, a point at which PSG have to decide if they must cash in on Rabiot or risk losing him on a Bosman transfer when the campaign concludes.
