The expiring contract of Adrien Rabiot at PSG is cause for concern for a lot of people. First, it is the people in Paris who may feel bad at losing him for free. Then there’s the vultures circling above Rabiot.
Real Madrid were reported to be top dogs in the pursuit of the French midfielder’s signature. Now, they are being counted out, such is the daily circus of media reports.
However, coming from Spain, Marca may have some substance to their story and as such this allows Liverpool a clear path to signing the player.
Suspended from the squad since their loss to Manchester United in the UCL, Rabiot is clamouring for playing time. His addition to the squad will give Liverpool the kind of midfield depth and strength that they have been lacking since Phillipe Coutinho departed for Barcelona.
Maybe, the Reds will just pull this one through!
