Report: Adrien Rabiot makes staggering demands after holding Tottenham talks

Daniel Levy takes his seat in the stand for the game during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland at White Hart Lane on September 18, 2016 in London, England.

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are competing to sign France international midfielder Adrien Rabiot from Ligue 1 champions PSG.

Tottenham Hotspur have held talks with Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot but he wants £200,000 a week from his next club, according to the Sun.

The French international has endured something of a personal nightmare this season after making it clear that he had no intention of extending a contract that is due to expire in July.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has not handed Rabiot a single Ligue 1 appearance since the first week of December and his omission is unlikely to come to an end after Le Parisiens signed Argentine international Leandro Paredes from Zenit St Petersburg in January.

 

Rabiot has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham over the last year or so and The Sun believes that he has held talks with the North London club.

But chairman Daniel Levy will have to part with £200,000 a week to lure the 23-year-old, figures that would make him the club’s joint highest earner along with star striker Harry Kane. Rabiot also wants a staggering £10 million signing on fee.

So much for the midfielder looking like a bargain.

Interestingly, the report claims that Manchester United have joined the race to sign one of Europe’s top young enforcers and would be willing to meet his demands.
