Liverpool on alert: French star makes €10m contract demand

Liverpool, Man Cityregardingand Chelsea long-term target Adrien Rabiot is believed to be demanding around €10 million per year for his next deal.

According to reports in Italy, who cite Mundo Deportivo, Rabiot has named his demands, with Milan and Juventus entering the race to sign the player at the end of his deal with Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain.

€10 million a year equates to around £170,000-a-week once converted into sterling.

France international midfielder finds himself at an advantage in negotiations given that he would be arriving for free after the season ends.

With no fee involved, potential suitors have far greater room to maneuver in terms of wages.

Interest in the French midfielder is mounting and Ligue 1 giants may now have to consider selling in January to avoid losing him for free.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are also keeping tabs on another PSG star Kylian Mbappe who has been one of the favourite players of Jurgen Klopp.

Mbappe faces the Merseyside Reds on Tuesday as the 19-year-old hopes to help PSG start their Champions League season with a victory.

The Merseyside Reds harboured a ‘genuine interest’ in the striker back the last summer, while new versatile midfielder Fabinho hopes to “slowly convince” him to make the switch to Anfield.

According to French newspaper L’Equipe, the Reds have ‘long been eyeing’ Frenchman, “but few clubs have been on the verge of signing him.

Their approaches have reached far beyond the point of ‘wishful thinking’, and date back to before Mbappe even made his professional debut.

L’Equipe reported that by the winter of the 2015/16 campaign, France international forward and his representatives had grown ‘impatient’ at his lack of opportunities.

He made his debut soon after but, lessening his desire to leave. however, his remarkable breakthrough only led to Reds continue to keep on his progress.

The Reds returned by summer 2017, at which point Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp spent ‘several hours’ trying to convince the Frenchman to make a switch to Anfield.

The Merseyside Reds were prepared to make Frenchman the club’s joint-highest earner alongside Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho, the teenager having led Monaco to the Ligue Un title and Champions League semi-finals.
