Spurs look set to face further disappointment in the transfer as it looks like Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is believed to be heading to Barcelona, bringing an end our long standing interest.
The 23-year-old has a just year left on his contract and rather than risk losing him for free when his current deal expires, the French champions have decided to sell him.
Le Parisien, report that new manager Thomas Tuchel doesn’t rate Rabiot, who has been linked with moves away for the last few seasons, as a priority and PSG could even get up to €40m for the player.
The article adds that the La Liga champions are in advanced negotiations to sign him.
Midfielder Rabiot caused outrage in France ahead of the World Cup when he refused to be a member of Didier Deschamps’ standby list.

”Hopefully it will help him grow up and think. When you play at the highest level, you can let your emotions take over. Im surprised because he is a young player with only a few caps”
