Manchester City are reportedly the favourites to sign Adrien Rabiot from Paris Saint-Germain, beating Milan, Juventus and Barcelona.
The 23-year-old midfielder will be a free agent when his contract expires in June 2019 and does not seem intent on signing a new deal in Paris.
According to Metro newspaper in England, Rabiot has given the all-clear for Manchester City and could even pen a pre-contract agreement in January.
He had already spent a year at Manchester City’s youth academy at the age of 14, but felt too homesick.
Rabiot has been targeted by the likes of Juventus, Milan, Barcelona and Manchester United in recent months.
