Adrien Rabiot's agent insists the Frenchman has NOT rejected an offer to stay at PSG - but will not be staying with the Ligue 1 champions regardless.

It was reported Rabiot had agreed a switch to Juventus but a last-ditch attempt from PSG to keep hold of the wantaway midfielder had cast doubt over the move.

Manchester United and Liverpool have also been linked with a swoop for Rabiot, as well as Barcelona , but Juve remain in the driving seat to secure his services.

And his agent and mother, Veronique Rabiot, says her son still has his heart set on leaving the French capital.

"I want to make a formal denial," she told RTL.

"I read absolutely everything. That Adrien had an appointment with Leonardo [sporting director] that he did not honour. Or that I received an offer to extend his contract from Leonardo that I refused to raise the auction.

"This is absolutely wrong. There is not the slightest discussion between Leonardo and I.

"I had him on the phone once since he came back and we greeted each other with respect. He's a smart person. There was no offer and there will not be any."

Juve have reportedly offered Rabiot a contract worth £6million-a-year and are confident of landing his signature.

But his mother insists nothing is signed yet.

"You know, in football, we're very superstitious, and it's better to say as little as you can until nothing is done," she added.

Rabiot came through the youth ranks at PSG and made 227 appearances for the first team, winning six Ligue 1 titles.

But disputes behind the scenes meant he played just 20 times in 2018-19.
