Sunday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo had an article on the current situation with Adrien Rabiot, and when it came to Tottenham they said Spurs had dropped out of the running because they weren’t prepared to pay him a €10m signing on fee.
However, it was stated that Mauricio Pochettino’s side had reactivated their interest in recent days, which would also fit with some of the claims coming from the French media.
Monday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo goes along the same lines, claiming Spurs have again ‘approached’ the signing of the footballer ‘in recent days’, which would mean they’re now reconsidering the one-off payment and terms on offer.
Interestingly, despite being a Catalan newspaper and therefore Barcelona leaning, Mundo Deportivo make a point of saying the reason Rabiot snubbed Tottenham was the lack of a €10m bonus… not because he feels the club is beneath him.
The midfielder hasn’t travelled to Qatar for PSG’s winter training camp, staying in Paris due to family reasons.
Rather than losing him for free, the French club would prefer a January move.
