Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have had to be separated this evening, as the race for an influential Ligue 1 midfielder heats up.
20-year-old Rabiot enjoyed a stint in the first-team due to the injury absence of Marco Verratti but has demanded a loan exit in the New Year if he loses his spot in the side upon Verratti’s return.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham are chasing Rabiot’s signature and PSG boss Blanc stated his frustration with the young player ahead of tonight’s Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.
“It annoys me. Adrien has to understand that when you have the possibility of going at the end of your contract and to leave for free, you can do it.”
“Otherwise, when you sign a contract of five years with PSG, you have to respect your first club.”
Spurs fans in the bar are desperate for the young talent to be signed, believing he’d be a welcome addition to their squad, but Arsenal supporters are growing increasingly worried at the player’s controversial behaviour.
