Rabiot only has one more year left to run down his contract.
Chelsea could be set to seal a £7 million pound deal for one of their long term targets in Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot after reports in the Daily Express suggested that the French club might want to cash-in on him this summer.
Rabiot only has one more year left on his contract in Paris, and has turned down a lucrative new deal at the club to try his hand at more regular football elsewhere.
Chelsea have been scouting the 19-year for almost a year now, and could be ready to firm up their interest.
With the Blues also ready to snap up the midfielder on a free-transfer next summer, PSG are being forced to sell the youngster, albeit for a slashed price of £7 million.
Rabiot is a French youth international who made 25 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions last season, with most of them coming from the bench.
Rabiot though is highly ambitious and wants to play more football and is hence seeking a move away from the French giants.
