It seems there appears to have been a little bit of miscommunication between Paris United, Téléfoot and Mauricio Pochettino over the past week when it comes to Adrien Rabiot.
The Paris Saint-Germain midfielder, who has attracted interest from Tottenham, doesn’t appear willing to sign a new contract with the Ligue 1 side, and there have been rumours, notably from the first source mentioned in the paragraph above, that Spurs could make a move in January.
However, Pochettino was having none of that recently, explaining to the press he didn’t feel as if the London club were going to be active on the transfer market next month, putting that story to bed.
This somewhat backs up what Téléfoot were reporting on Sunday, as they explain that Tottenham, while ‘remaining interested’, aren’t planning on trying to force his exit from Paris in January, rather waiting for his contract to expire in June and get him on a free.
The TV show also report Spurs aren’t quite at the same level Juventus and Barcelona when it comes to their level of keenness, suggesting they could be a step behind overall.
That would, in some way, corroborate what Paris United were reporting, in that Daniel Levy was refusing to give Rabiot his €10m/year salary wish, while the Spanish giants were.
As for Juventus, there’s been no details regarding a potential contract offer, but if they truly are interested, we’re sure it won’t be long before something slips through the cracks.
