Blanc blasts Arsenal target Rabiot for wanting PSG exit

Paris Saint-Germain manager Laurent Blanc has expressed his ire at recent comments made by Adrien Rabiot.

The young midfielder has revealed that he would be interested in going out on loan in January if the opportunity presented itself.

20-year-old Rabiot has been playing regularly of late in the absence of the injured Marco Verratti but could be tempted to Arsenal in the winter if the Italian returns to the PSG line-up soon.

However, Blanc was less than impressed with Rabiot's behaviour as he feels the young Frenchman should show more love for his current club.

"It annoys me," Blanc said ahead of PSG's Champions League game against Shakhtar Donetsk.

"I don't want to say anymore and I'm going to concentrate on tomorrow's match.

"Adrien has to understand that when you have the possibility of going at the end of your contract and to leave for free, you can do it.

"Otherwise, when you sign a contract of five years with PSG, you have to respect your first club."
