His mum and agent, Veronique has now rubbed salt in the wounds by insisting that the decision is final.
"Could Rabiot leave this winter?" The situation has completely deteriorated and there is no way back ... very few people are rushing to defend Adrien's situation.
This situation could force the midfielder to leave the French club earlier as it is the only way PSG will receive any money for him.
PSG sporting director Antero Henrique disclosed that Rabiot was dropped from the first-team for expressing his desire to quit. "What I will say is that he has been a friend of mine from the start - we have risen through the ranks together and grown up".
Rabiot's mother did, however, admit she and her son were aware of an offer from Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
"I was surprised", he said.

Last week, he said the United States is "in no hurry" to negotiate with North Korea , signaling a further delay in his summit meeting with Kim.
"During the transfer window of summer, I had told Mr Henrique that I wanted Adrien on the transfer list and he wanted to leave". That's telling, it shows that Barcelona had reached an agreement with Rabiot before coming to speak to us.
"Barcelona's offer was ridiculous". The club refused, the club has the full right to refuse, but we cannot say he was not aware. L'Equipe states that talks of an agreement with Barcelona are untrue, something which has also been pushed by the Catalan media.
According to the latest claims, however, the Ligue 1 giants are desperate to sell in January, in order to avoid losing him on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Thomas Tuchel was clearly upset that the relationship between the player and club has broken down.
Henrique told Yahoo Sport: "The player informed me that he would not sign a contract and that he wanted to leave the club [as a free agent] at the end of the season, ie.at the end of his contract". "I understand and respect this decision, now we're going to wait".
