Adel Taarabt: Making loan move to AC Milan

Adel Taarabt is undergoing a medical at AC Milan with a view to joining the Italian giants on loan for the rest of the season, the Rossoneri have confirmed.

The 24-year-old Morocco international joined Fulham on a season-long loan from relegated QPR last summer but has made just 16 appearances in all competitions for the Cottagers.

A statement from AC Milan read: "Adel Taarabt has landed on a private jet to (Milan's) Linate airport.

"In order for his transfer to the Rossoneri club to be made official, we must wait for the necessary procedures to take place."

Former Lens and Tottenham playmaker Taarabt says he is looking forward to linking up with former Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli at the San Siro.

"I am honoured to be able to play in the best club in the world," Taarabt told www.acmilan.com. "I have spoken to (AC Milan coach Clarence) Seedorf and we are both really happy.

"I am a striker and I like to play behind the forwards.

"I don't know personally Balotelli but I know very well who he is and it will be great to play with him."

"I am a striker and I like to play behind the forwards." That makes you a midfielder, Adel, not a striker. Maybe it would help your performances and development to understand what you f**king role in the team is?

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
