Barcelona have reportedly pulled out of the race to sign Adrien Rabiot which would leave Liverpool and Spurs as the favourites to land him in the summer on a free transfer.

The Frenchman had agreed a move to Barcelona at the start of January to join them at the end of the season on a Bosman transfer but PSG blocked the move as they were furious that he had been operating behind their backs.

PSG were unable to secure a transfer fee for him during the Winter window but now AS claim that Barcelona have pulled out of the race to sign him which will come as a major boost to Liverpool and Spurs’ desires to sign him.

Despite initial claims that he had agreed personal terms for a move to Catalonia, it now seems as though a move to the Premier League is likelier.

Rabiot has shown his affection for Liverpool and Anfield on social media before and while several reliable journalists from Ligue 1 have cited attitude problems as a stumbling block, the same was the case with Xherdan Shaqiri and he has proved to be a key member of this title-charge-leading Liverpool team.

Rabiot is a free agent at the end of the season and while Liverpool and Spurs are the favourites, Manchester United and Arsenal are also believed to be interested.
