Rabiot: I have no idea why Roma move collapsed

The 19-year-old has confirmed he is desperate to complete a move to the Serie A club and admits he may never play for Paris Saint-Germain again after being demoted to the reserves

Paris Saint-Germain youngster Adrien Rabiot has revealed he was all set to join Roma during the summer before the deal collapsed.

The 19-year-old midfielder has consistently been linked with a move away from the Parc des Princes, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

The France youth international expressed his frustration at the breakdown of a move earlier this year and admitted he may never play for his current club again.

"With Roma, everything was done. It was my choice. I had already decided to wear their shirt. And to be honest, I don't understand why the deal collapsed,” he told Canal+.

"I don't know if I will play again for PSG. It was not my choice to play for the reserve team team but it's a pleasure to play football, even training and playing in the fourth tier.

“I'm available to the coach [Laurent Blanc] and he'll decide. We speak very often and he told me that he would love this situation to be resolved.”

The teenager, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, went on to reject any suggestions that his decision to leave the Ligue 1 side was because he didn’t think he could break into the first team.

"It's not true that I fear the competition at PSG,” he said.

“Look at the other midfielders at Roma. There is competition there, too. Roma are a big club with a nice project and they are now playing in the Champions League.

“Now, we just have to will wait until January to see what we can do.”
