Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot has agreed terms with Barcelona ahead of a future move but a January transfer is not likely, a source has told ESPN FC.
Rabiot's mother and agent, Veronique, has been in talks with Barca since the start of this month — the beginning of the final six months of the 23-year-old's PSG contract.
Barca have denied that an agreement has been reached, but the source said they were offering a basic annual salary of €10 million and a €10m signing-on fee as part of a bonus-heavy contract at least four years long.
PSG believe the agreement predates Rabiot entering the final six months of his deal, the source said.
There remains a possibility that the France international could move this month, but that is unlikely to happen before PSG depart for their winter tour in Qatar at the end of this week.
