Paris: Ligue 1 defending champions Paris Saint-Germain have been given a headache as their teenage sensation Adrien Rabiot refused to train while silently pushing for a move away from the French club.

According to L’Equipe Wednesday, the 19-year-old midfielder was expected to join PSG training Monday, but failed to check in and came up with a excuse of “missed flight”, reports Xinhua.

He then reportedly turned up late for Tuesday’s training and cited foot pain to avoid practice.

As one of the hottest prospects in Europe, Rabiot, who made his debut for PSG two years ago at just 17 and impressed last season with 34 appearances in total for Laurent Blanc’s side, has been linked with English Premier League’s Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea, as well as Italian giants AC Milan and Roma.

“I believe he will leave, but I can’t tell you where,” Blanc had earlier said.
