Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is reportedly keen to seal the transfer of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot before a future deal for Manchester United star Paul Pogba.

The France international is said to be refusing offers of a new contract as he holds out for a move to the Nou Camp, which could cost Barcelona €50million, according to Don Balon.

Rabiot has long been one of the finest young midfielders in the game, and arguably an underrated member of this PSG side.

The French giants could do well not to lose this big talent to Barca, but it seems Valverde is eager to partner him with Pogba in the future, according to Don Balon.
