Adrien Rabiot's future at Paris Saint-Germain remains uncertain with the Arsenal and Chelsea target still to sign a contract extension.

The French champions offered the 18-year-old a five-year deal last August, but the promising midfielder has yet to put pen to paper with his playing time limited under Laurent Blanc.
The former Manchester City youth academy member has made just eight starts in 20 brief appearances in Ligue 1 this season, and with his current contract expiring in 2015, potential suitors are circling.
Rabiot's mother and principal advisor, Veronique, told Le Parisien the direction of her son's future career will be dictated by how much time he will get on the pitch, not how much money he will receive.
"We don't take decisions in terms of financial criteria," she said. "They have their importance, of course, but the priority is the sporting project. How much playing time can Adrien have in the short-term future? Are all the conditions there for him to continue his progress? That's the most important thing."
