The French manager confirmed that he is likely to depart the Parc des Princes, but refused to comment on where his next destination will be.

Laurent Blanc said: “I believe he will leave, but I can’t tell you where.

“Rabiot has received a good offer from PSG but apparently it doesn’t interest him. It’s a shame.”

The Gunners were said to be in pole position to sign Rabiot in the summer window as Arsene Wenger sees him as a potential candidate to solve his problems in the holding midfield role.
