Barcelona deny agreeing to sign Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint Germain

Barcelona have dismissed reports of an agreement with Paris Saint Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot and insist they have not broken the rules over his potential recruitment.

The Catalans, along with several Premier League clubs including Liverpool and Arsenal, have been linked with the France international, whose contract with PSG ends in June.

Barcelona are interested in signing Rabiot

Reports in France and Spain claim Barca are preparing to offer Rabiot, 23, a five-year deal when the transfer window opens on January 1.

The Catalan club said in a statement on Sunday they had made contact with PSG’s management “last August and then a week ago” to express their interest in Rabiot, but had not spoken to the player.

“In response to the news that has appeared in France, Barcelona state that there has been no breach of regulations regarding the signing of PSG players,” the statement read.
