Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona when his contract expires in June, yet his head coach, Thomas Tuchel, believes that he could still remain in the French capital.
The Parisians do not want to lose the 23-year-old and will fight until the end as they look to sign him to a long-term deal, though Rabiot‘s agent – his mother Veronique – has reportedly been in Barcelona negotiating a move.
“It’s not an easy situation for him,” Tuchel said about Rabiot.
“He’s not the first player to have this problem in the dressing room, but he’s still working everyone else and is very professional.
“It is what I expect of him and I am sure it will stay like that; we must be [professional], too.
“The dressing room knows his situation.
“It is a complicated market situation, he is our player and everything can happen.
“It is a situation between the club and the player.”
On Sunday evening, PSG face fifth division side Pontivy away from home in the Coupe de France.
