Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has all-but confirmed Adrien Rabiot will be leaving in the summer, admitting the midfielder’s situation is “impossible”.
Rabiot has fallen out of favour in France and hasn’t featured for the Ligue 1 giants since December 11.
His contract is set to expire at the end of the season and there are a host of clubs ready to hand him a contract, including Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Tuchel was asked about the midfielder’s availability ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 clash with Nantes on Wednesday.
He responded: “It’s impossible. Maybe we’ll take some young players. We’ve considered some to join training, that’s what we’re going to see after.”
PSG have been linked with a move for Manchester United’s Ander Herrera in recent months, what with the Spaniard’s contract set to expire in June.
Tuchel wasn’t asked directly about the midfielder in his press conference, but did speak about PSG’s plans ahead of the summer transfer window opening.
“I know the positions and profile I want exactly, for now we have to see if it’s possible to make them happen,” said Tuchel.
The PSG boss also provided an update on the injured Neymar. He added: “He’s good, he’s working collectively with the team and is part of the training groups.
“You can see he wants to play but we must wait for the right time even though he wants to get on as quickly as possible.”
