PSG ‘could’ cancel Adrien Rabiot’s contract after latest behaviour

Paris Saint-Germain have suspended Adrien Rabiot after the midfielder’s behaviour following the club’s Champions League exit and could even cancel his contract.

Rabiot, who was banished to the reserves after PSG failed to sell him in January. The 23-year-old had refused a new contract with the Ligue 1 leaders and will leave for nothing in the summer.

Now, though, he has been fully suspended by the club until 27 March.

According to Le Parisien and L’Équipe, PSG even have the right to cancel Rabiot’s contract.

The midfielder’s misdemeanours are subject to an internal investigation and there is a possibility a breach of contract would see him released with three months remaining on his deal.

The report says that outcome is, however, unlikely.

PSG have a clause in their players contracts that allows the club to suspend them for “major faults”, per Get French Football News.

That option has been taken up after Rabiot went clubbing following PSG’s Champions League defeat to Manchester United. The midfielder then liked an Instagram post by Patrice Evra which criticised the French club.
