Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Antero Henrique has had a bit of a pop at Barcelona for their attempts to land Adrien Rabiot last summer.

Henrique has explained how Barcelona put in a late offer for the midfielder, which was rejected, and is not too happy with their behaviour.

“This is true, we received a bid on the 29th August, 20 hours before the closure of the summer transfer window,” he said.

“It is simple, this means that Barcelona must have had an agreement with Rabiot before coming to discuss with us.

“You have to know that Barcelona’s offer was ridiculous. For us, the club, we were very surprised by this low offer.

“The offer was disrespectful for some of Rabiot’s standing. I insist, it is not possible to reach an agreement with a player like Adrien in 24 hours. So it is clear that Barcelona must have already had an agreement with Adrien.”

PSG do look set to lose Rabiot now after failing to agree a new deal with the midfielder. He’ll either be sold in the January transfer window or walk away for free next summer.
