Thomas Tuchel ‘respects’ PSG’s stance on contract rebel Adrien Rabiot

The French midfielder's contract at the Parc des Princes is due to expire at the end of the current season and there are a host of clubs understood to be keen on signing him.

"Adrien's decision is firm and definitive", Veronique told RTL. "It is impossible to go back". I see no disloyalty.

Barcelona reportedly offered PSG a surprisingly low sum of money for the player's transfer in summer. PSG sporting director Antero Henrique recently confirmed that the player made his intentions to leave clear.

Tottenham and Liverpool are thought to be interested in his services, but would he really worth the risk based on his behaviour in recent months? I think that some people enjoy believing it.

"We are not allowed to speak with any club until January 1 and I will not speak with any club until January 1".

In a recent interview with Yahoo Sport (via Football Espana), Henrique said that negotiations are now off and that Rabiot will be "indefinitely benched" until he signs a new contract.

While PSG are blaming other clubs for not following rules, UEFA had earlier threatened to reopen a case on financial fairplay against the French champions, who had appealed against UEFA's decision in the Court of Arbitration for Sport. "That is correct - an offer was made at 8 p.m. on August 29 before the summer transfer window closed".

"Barcelona's offer was ridiculous. We have no right to speak to any clubs until the 1st of January... we were not prepared for such aggression, it is very violent but we are forced to accept it".

"That's why it's clear that they already had an agreement".

"It seems that the player and his representative have totally misled us for the past few months", he said.
