L'Equipe says Rabiot is prepared to sign new terms, but only if two demands are agreed to with club management.
His mother, Veronique, is in charge of negotiations and insisting her son will only re-sign if there are assurances he won't be played as a No6 long-term. Rabiot has been unhappy filling in for Thiago Motta this season.
Veronique also wants a guarantee that Rabiot will be handed the vice-captaincy. For the moment, the negotiations remain at standstill.
