Taarabt open to Milan move

Adel Taarabt has claimed that while his agent has spoken to AC Milan, other factors would have to happen before any move to the San Siro.

Adel Taarabt: QPR playmaker was linked with a move to PSG last year

QPR's Moroccan playmaker admits that rumoured exits and arrivals at the San Siro would have an effect on whether he would make a move to the Italian giants.

"Me to AC Milan? My agent speaks with (AC Milan CEO, Adriano) Galliani, but my future depends on Robinho and Pastore," Taarabt told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Milan aren't going through a glorious period now, and they're no longer a part of the top clubs, but making it big with the Rossoneri could open the door to huge clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona."

Taarabt was close to moving to Paris St-Germain in 2011, but he is adamant that a move to the French side is not on the cards.

"Leonardo preferred Pastore and then spoke ill of me. As long as he stay there I won't ever go to Paris, even if I often hear the president Nasser Al Khelaifi."

However a move elsewhere in the Premier League is something the 23-year-old would consider.

"I'd leave London only for Manchester United, the club of my dreams, where there is no number 10.

"For Mr Ferguson I'd also stay silent on the bench and I would work hard."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
