Lionel Messi asks Barcelona not to sign top transfer target

Lionel Messi has asked Barcelona to not sign Paris Saint-Germain star Adrien Rabiot, according to reports in Spain.

The Spanish giants were keen to sign Rabiot in January but were put off by his huge demands.

Rabiot had a list of demands that were unreasonably high and that’s why Barcelona decided to close the signing of Frenkie de Jong. Rabiot reportedly wanted €20 million as signing bonus in addition to a hefty wage package and a guarantee of a key position in the team

Barcelona ace Messi believes that Rabiot won’t be a good fit at the Camp Nou and has forbidden the Cules from striking up a deal with him.
