He said: « The player informed me that he would not sign a contract and that he wanted to leave the club by being free toward the finish of the season, at the end of his contract.
« For the player, this will have a very clear consequence – he will remain on the bench for an indefinite period.
« It seems that the player and his representative have misled us for several months.

While Arsenal and Tottenham are looking to bait the skilled midfielder to North London.
Since making his presentation in 2012, Rabiot has included in excess of multiple times for PSG, and has chipped in with two goals and two assists in 20 games this season.
