Real Madrid are reportedly ready to consider hijacking Barcelona’s deal to seal the transfer of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
The Spanish giants lost Mateo Kovacic to Chelsea this summer so could do with more bodies in that area of the pitch, especially with Luka Modric not getting any younger.
Rabiot has shown himself to be a top talent at PSG, though Real Madrid are now on alert for him and could rival Barcelona for him as he refuses to sign a new contract at the Parc des Princes, according to Don Balon.
The Frenchman could certainly be a fine signing for any top club, and luckily La Liga sides have until the end of the month to sign players, even if the window is now closed for Premier League and Serie A clubs.
Diario Gol have also previously linked Rabiot with Real Madrid in a potential €70million transfer, which seems a fair price for one of Europe’s top young midfield players.
It will be interesting to see how this one pans out in the coming days, though some Los Blancos fans will no doubt be hoping their club focuses on signing attacking players instead after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo this summer.
