Rabiot is out of contract at the end of the season, but PSG could offload him now before losing him for nothing.

Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to let Adrien Rabiot leave for a cut-price fee as they rush to get the French midfielder out the door before the end of January.

Rabiot has been suspended by the French champions after announcing that he will not sign a new contract at the Parc des Princes, meaning that he will be allowed to leave for free at the end of the season.

PSG want to avoid that eventuality by selling Rabiot now, and they may allow him to leave for as little as €15m (£13.5m), according to Marca.

Barcelona remain the frontrunners to sign Rabiot on a free transfer, with reports indicating that they had reached a pre-contract agreement with the 23-year-old, but progress has stalled in recent weeks.

PSG claimed that the La Liga leaders had acted improperly in their pursuit of Rabiot, and they would prefer to do business with another club who are prepared to buy Rabiot now, rather than at the end of the season.

Rabiot has been linked with numerous top European clubs including all of the Premier League's top five, although Rabiot's representatives have indicated that Tottenham falls below the player's standards.

Chelsea may be Rabiot's most likely Premier League destination, as Maurizio Sarri is known to be pursuing a midfielder, with Nicolo Barella and Leandro Paredes also on his shortlist.

Liverpool have been linked with Rabiot as well, but Jurgen Klopp has repeatedly said that the Reds won't be making any new signings in January. Arsenal are another possible destination, though given their high spending in the summer transfer window, it's unknown whether the Gunners will be making another big splash in January. 

Barcelona must step up their pursuit in the next two weeks if they want to avoid a repeat of last summer, when they missed out on their top target Antoine Griezmann.
