Certainly seems interesting timing with the FDJ announcement. I'm sure PSG would rather sell to us (especially as he's currently with their reserves) but convincing the player/mother sounds like it could be very tricky.
He only has 6 months left on his contract, so PSG might not even be in a position to decide who signs him.

Normally I’m not one for rejecting players due to attitude etc as I think it’s sometimes overplayed.

However, this guy does come across as a grade A tool and his mother sounds like a fucking nightmare.

Sounds like the comolete antithesis of what Poch has spend so long cultivating here.
I generally agree with this stance. However, if we are still serious about signing him, I have to believe that Poch has given his approval, which must mean that he thinks he can get Rabiot to buy into his philosophy.

Baldini couldn't sort out his mother, so maybe it's time Levy stepped into the breach.

You can read that sentence however you like.

I'm sure all the stories and reports in the French media are untrue.

Why do you not believe them then?
The reports weren't even in the French media. It was like one report from ESPN. If he thought we were below him, why would he entertain a call with our manager.

It is certainly interesting with seemingly a series of deals contingent on the De Jong move. PSG were thought favorites for the now former Ajax man but stepped up their pursuit of Parades when it appeared they were to miss out. Although Rabiot has been outcast this season, PSG would be keen to deal with us whilst there is some value left. DL has a great relationship with their execs...

Maybe its best for him to leave France and get away from bad influences? Could have sworn I read something here on SC that that is why we loaned Edwards to Holland...

Can we lay off the lazy racist and misogynistic comments about Sissoko’s sexual potency (because he happens to be black) and Rabiot’s mum being subdued by sex (because she’s a woman). She sounds like an absolute loon, agreed, but there are better jokes to make
