According to reports, Adrien Rabiot has this evening contacted Tottenham Hotspur to inform them that he will not be making a move to North London.

French news outlet L’Equipe, the PSG player has snubbed the opportunity to play under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Spurs boss was said to have held a telephone conversation with Rabiot on Wednesday to try and convince him to make the move but appears to have failed in his hopes.

Rabiot, 23, will become a free agent in the summer and PSG sporting director Antero Henrique has already confirmed that the player had refused to sign a new contract in December.

Barcelona had been heavily linked with a move for the midfielder but have recently signed Ajax’s Frenkie de Jong.  

Liverpool have also been credited with interest and a report in the Express suggests that he would prefer a switch to Anfield over Spurs if he were to decide to make the switch to the Premier League.

Rabiot is regarded as one of Europe’s brightest young midfielders and it would represent a huge blow to Tottenham’s transfer aspirations ahead of the transfer window closing on Thursday night.

  1. Screw Rabiot! This obnoxious pretentious little berk seems to think Spurs are beneath him anyway.
    From what I’ve heard of him, I hope he fades very quickly up his own backside into lower league obscurity.
    PSG can’t wait to get rid of him, and it looks as if Barca and others are steering
    well clear. He could prove to be a legend in his own lunchtime in his search for
    the ‘perfect’ club that suits his ‘perfect’ abilities and potential. The trouble is that, with his attitude,
    he’ll probably end up in the French 3rd tier, and getting kicked out of clubs at that level as well!
    Poch, and Tottenham, could well have been angels in waiting for him ..the catalyst for him to
    ‘prove’ he can be a great player at one of the best equipped and quickly growing/developing clubs around, as well as the 10th richest. But I see this deluded young man years from now crying over his wine in some bar, lamenting why the biggest clubs in the world couldn’t see how great he was, or give him the pedestal position he thought he deserved!

  2. no player wants to sign for spurs due to our cheapskate chairman and his bullshit phylosophy to get every1 for cheap as a spurs supporter im damn tired of bullshit promises.. LEVY get the F###CK OUT the club and get sum1 wo actually cares to win trophies…. my god how long must this shit still go on
