Speaking with Le Parisien, Rabiot admitted speaking with Mbappe about the rumours surrounding his future was one of the first things he did.

Despite the fact they have nearly unlimited resources, due to Middle Eastern backing, they'll have to do some serious balancing of the books. "This is very good news for the club of course".

Rabiot, who put PSG contract extension talks on hold this summer, said that until the recent arrivals of Neymar and Mbappe, he and teammates likes Marco Verratti and Marquinhos had been considering their futures at PSG.

Serge Aurier is another man who will be leaving Paris, especially with Dani Alves now at the club as well.

Serie A giants Inter Milan are close to securing the services of Lazio forward Keita Balde, according to reports from CalcioMercato, an Italian football transfers outlet.

The 24-year-old will be available for a bargain €25 million.

Expect PSG to usher at least one of their global forwards - Goncalo Guedes, the Portugal winger who cost €30m from Benfica in January, and the marginalised maverick Hatem ben Arfa are also in the queue - towards the exit over the coming days.

The Qatar-backed club has already splashed out an outrageous £198m on Brazilian Neymar this window and FFP regulations state you can only spend £27m more than you earn.

"For this season because Thiago, who turned 35 [on Monday], will not be able to play sixty games this year".

In the end, PSG will pay a around €150m, and the deal is now more or less set.

Monaco were 2-0 up in the 20th minute as Falcao converted a penalty awarded for a Jordan Amavi foul on Fabinho, another player closely linked with a move to PSG.

This makes Draxler the most interesting prospect.

English Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur also monitoring his situation at Lazio but it is understood that Inter is the favourites to land the Senegal worldwide. "But if they don't comply we will punish, and we will punish severely".
