But, the Blues are ready to move quickly to beat their local rivals to the teenager’s signature, and are open to starting negotiations with PSG ahead of the January transfer window.
Jose Mourinho is ready to sanction a £10m raid, and is hopeful that the Parisians will opt to sell.
Rabiot himself has hinted that he is ready to leave the Parc des Princes if the club continue to sign midfield players.
The youngster is currently battling with a number of experienced international stars, which has limited his game time.
He is keen to develop, and sees further competition as a barrier to him pressing on to become a regular starter.
Chelsea are thought to be willing to let Rabiot stay with PSG for the remainder of the season, and could further sweeten the deal with a series of add-ons.
Could Adrien Rabiot be a future Chelsea star?
