Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot has said that he would not hesitate to leave his boyhood club in search of first team football.
The 18-year-old is without a doubt one of the hottest prospects to have come out of club’s youth academy in recent years, and he has already managed to prove his undoubted potential.
Despite his fragile age, Rabiot has featured in 8 Ligue 1 matches this term, starting two of those and scoring one goal in the process.
However, having seen what happened to Mamadou Sakho, the youngster won’t be afraid to leave the Saints if he doesn’t get a real chance at Parc des Princes.
“The label ‘formed at PSG’ exists. I know it’s important to the supporters and the leaders, but it’s not enough,” the midfielder confessed to Le Parisien.
“If this is to be set aside on the day when other players are recruited then it isn’t worth it.
“I don’t want to live the way Mamadou Sakho did. After a while, when he realised he would not play much, he took the decision to leave and he did well.”
Adrian Rabiot has already amassed 27 Ligue 1 appearances having featured in 13 matches while on loan at Toulouse last term.
His current club remain the favourites to defend the league trophy and are priced at 1/4 at the moment even if they will be tied on points with Monaco if their title rivals defeat Sochaux later today.
