Paris Saint Germain midfielder, Adrien Rabiot has registered his desire to play in the EPL in the near future.
The Frenchman spent a couple of seasons with Manchester City, moving around several teams as a youth before leaving for PSG.
However, he has been unable to hold down a regular spot in the starting XI, prompting talks of him leaving the club.
And the France Under 21 international says he hopes to return to England one day, even for reasons beyond football.
“I really liked my time in England, and the life there, even outside of football,” he told Telefoot.
“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!”
Rabiot had been linked with clubs throughout the summer, but he says new PSG coach Unai Emery wanted to keep him, and he hopes to become an important player this term.
“I have also spoken with the coach and he told me that he is really counting on me,” he added.
“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.”
