Rabiot was sent to practice with a reserve

Adrien Rabiot had been dumped into the reserve when Paris Saint-Germain's future was balanced in a balance.

The midfielder left the club's winter training camp in Qatar earlier for family reasons and now trains with the second string.

Rabiot dropped out of contract at the end of the season with Barcelona and Liverpool leading the chase for his signature.

His manager Thomas Tuchel said: "I have to prepare my team against Guingamp and it will be a team without Andrien. I respect the club's decision and this is the club's decision. "

Barcelona were forced to deny that they had agreed to a deal with the Frenchman.

They said last year: "Regarding the news that has emerged in France, FC Barcelona stated that the club has not violated the rules relating to recruiting players from PSG. The only contact occurred in August and once again a week ago.

"On both occasions contact with PSG to express the club's interest in player Adrien Rabiot.

"FC Barcelona always wants to operate with maximum transparency with PSG and all other clubs. FC Barcelona denies any kind of agreement with PSG player Adrien Rabiot. "
