Talented French central-midfielder Adrien Rabiot, who plays for Ligue 1 side Paris Saint Germain has revealed that he wants to make a return to Premier League.
The talented midfielder impressed during his brief stint at Manchester City’s youth set up in 2008, before signing for Ligue 1 champions PSG.
Despite displaying impressive form, Rabiot failed to secure a permanent place in the PSG first team. Earlier, in January the French playmaker was highly linked with a move-back to Manchester City and it was believed that the player was keen on making the switch due to lack of game time. However, transfer negotiations were stalled and nothing materialised before the end of the summer transfer window.
In an interview, Rabiot asserted that wants to move back to Premier League.
“I really liked my time in England, and the life there, even outside of football. I told myself that I will return one day. I have always had the desire to play in England, it is in me.”
“The Premier League… that is football!”
“I have also spoken with the coach and he told me that he is really counting on me.”
“I want to prove this season that I can be an important player for the team. My ambition is to establish myself as a starter at PSG and I think that with that, international recognition with France will also come.”
“Of course I am very happy at PSG and I would like to stay for a long time, to grow with the club and to become captain of the team one day, but we cannot predict how things can turn out.”
Rabiot earned 38 appearances in all competitions for PSG last season and he asserted that he is ready to take a step forward and play for the French national team, after already making 16 appearances for the U21 set up.
“The coach makes his choices and we have no say in that. However, if you ask me if I am ready I say that yes, I think I am,” Rabiot added.
“I have not done badly in Ligue 1 since the start of the season and I already have a good level of Champions League experience. My time will come, I am not worried. It is up to the coach to decide when.”
