Adrien Rabiot is set to snub a host of European mega clubs in order to sign a new deal at PSG.

Rabiot, who was on the standby list for France at the World Cup, could sign the contract this week.

He looked set to leave the Parisian side in either January or next summer, due to his contract expiring in June.

Over the past two months, the 23-year-old had been in negotiations with PSG, as well as a host of European clubs, specifically Barcelona.

The defensive midfielder was reportedly unhappy with his playing time at PSG, as well as the finances in the proposed deal.

Given PSG’s oil-rich resources, it seemed unlikely that they were ever going to be beaten financially in any deal.

It was reported that Rabiot's mother was negotiating the deal for her son, as she is one of his agents, and was demanding a huge sign-on fee.

Barcelona seemed confident of a deal taking place, and the departure of Rabiot seemed inevitable.

Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City were also interested in the services of the youngster.

Liverpool even engaged in talks with Rabiot's representatives, according to French football journalist Julien Laurens.

Lauren’s explained: "I think it was quite positive.

"I don’t think it’s the first time Rabiot’s men have talked with people from the club.

"The interest from Klopp is even pre-Liverpool and Liverpool, since Klopp have always been there."

"I really like Adrien, really, I appreciate him,” he said.

"There was a difficult situation after the World Cup that he missed but Adrien has showed incredible willingness from the first day of training.

"He has never missed a training session, not a single thing -- we can really trust him and count on him.

"I love working with Adrien and I have no influence over the rest."
