Official: Milan send Taiwo on loan to QPR


TAYE TAIWO has left Milan to join English side Queens Park Rangers on a six-month loan deal.

It has been known for days now but only now it’s got the official stamp: Taiwo is no longer part of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad as he’s moved to England to play for Queens Park Rangers F.C.

Brought in the summer on a Bosman deal, Taiwo was supposed to solve Milan’s left-back problems but failed to impress the coach and the people in via Turati and after only 8 appearances, he’s gone on loan.

“AC Milan announces that it has sold, on a loan basis, the player Taye Taiwo at Queens Park Rangers,” an official statement on the Rossoneri’s site reads on Tuesday. “It’s a new and exciting challenge for me and one I am very much looking forward to,” Taiwo told QPR’s official website. “I can’t wait to play for the Club.”

Milan already acquired Djamel Mesbah from Lecce. Taiwo and Didac Vila who is at Espanyol at the moment, are currently both on loan with no option to buy in the summer – thus they will return in July.

does dis mean we still ve 2 non eu slots?


Just wish him luck and wish he comes back stronger and better … With Tevez and (one) class midfielder , we are the champions ! FORZA MILAN


That is my question too because I am unfamiliar with the rules. Does this mean another non-EU slot opens up or does it only open up if the move is permanent?

I would appreciate some help from someone with a better grasp of the rules then me.


We need Teves…. And Maxi Lopex for UCL spot…


Maxi is not wat i had in mind . Tevez cant play dis season in the ucl . So we need a supercharged ibra n a more clinical binho .

Hoping they all return better than ever, and if they do we must sell Antonin. i also read about Shingi Kagawa being available for 15mil.

He shouldnt come back,we should collect the money at the end of the season whether good or bad as we cant aford to have Zambro,Antonini,Mesbah and Didac all for one position.It was a good thing he came for free,if not it would have been one of Galliani’s worst transfer(Mancini’s of Inter quickly comes to mind)


Don’t worry, if he plays well and we don’t want him in summer, we’ll be able to sell him for a higher price than we would now.


I think it’s a pity that he leaves. It is true that he hasn’t really impressed but he didn’t perform much worse than antonini or zambrotta while they get a lot more playing time. I havent seen mesbah play but I dont really expect him to be a top class leftback since he comes from one the worst defences of serie a. The leftback position has been a serious problem now and we need a quality leftback immediately. Why doesnt galliani realise this and spend some money maybe 10-15 mil for kolarov or criscito if we cant even spend that… Read more »


Although I feel Taiwo didn’t do enough to impress I also thought he never got the run of games that maybe he needed to get into a good rhythm and ultimately get into form. That being said I almost feel we’ve missed a trick with Taiwo. With the issues that Milan seem to have replacing Nesta (mexes being injured, bonera not being the player many hoped he would be and the youth not being trusted) I feel Taiwo standing at six foot, with strength, pace and good ariel ability gave him a shot at becoming a good centre back. This… Read more »


taiwo completely lacks the things that make nesta so awesome game reading,tackling,tactical awareness also he is always calm and composed.u cannot learn thiese things in a year or two.
ramos has decent game reading ability and good tackle,but he’s no comparisson to nesta


Glad that you came, disappointed that you failed.
hope you develop in England!

Youre always welcomed back!!


I forgot all about Didac Vila. Come July though, I can see us selling both Vila and Taiwo. I think Emmanuelson should be our starting LB from now onwards.


Am hearing we’ve giving city until Friday to make up their mind, a meeting is imminent this week. Lopez?still waiting


The report i have says muntari will be loaned to genoa and then be a Milan player in June(not sure this is good news imo) also raiola wants new €11million contract for ibra still 2015(is he kidding ?) fingers crossed…


i hope we don’t sign muntari…he is horrible!!!


@danrondo,i am very pleased with your updates,i heard Man City does not want us to sign him anymore they are willing to hung on unto him as long as they can,26 years as a Milan fan i have never seen a player so willing to join us,can you recall any player like that? A lot of people said he only plays for money but this was a guy who was willing to cut off 50% of his pay just to join us.No matter what some fans think to me Tevez has earn my respect he is a fighter who needs… Read more »

Taiwo cant(will never) adapt to the seria A game,loaning him to a mid table Italian club will have done him more good rather than going to a different league where defending isnt a bedrock upon which teams are built.
I forsee Taiwo wanting to stay over(should he finally break the duck)rather than coming back to a team where he isnt sure of a starting shirt.
Maldini said he was a big joke,that just explain it all and moreover playing time are earned not given, ask Pippo.


Juve killed roma wud luv a milan juve final . We re gonna get maxi .


Wish Taiwo all the best. Off topic: Lopez has signed a 3 year and half contract with Milan (half a million euro for rest of the season and 8M euro final fee)and would be a Milan player (his agent confirmed this yesterday to Milannews) BUT Galiani is using Lopez as a factor on Tevez transfer which in my opinion is cheeky. Mancity are not happy with us and have voiced their opinion about the whole Milan-Tevez issue but the thing is, Milan have not done anything wrong bcos we had discussions with Kia whom Mancity gave the task of finding… Read more »


We should’ve sold him and bought Montolivo with that money




@silas its a pleasure.but i remember ronaldinho forfeit some money to join us too.i think what angers city most is we were conducting this transfer in the media.their chairman al-mubarak has said we either pay or forget it.


signing Monty we will have a lot of depth in the midfield.
i wouldn’t mind if we sign Giovinco.
Nainggolan would be amazing!!!


pato + 20 million in the summer for balotelli and tevez.



Dear danrondo
try and update as much as you can,your updates is awesome thank you


I don’t think we are gonna go for Nanningolan but Montolivo.


Guys how does this line up sound?… If we sign Tevez… sounds formidable to me! considering there are so many matches including Champions League where Shaaraway will play

Abate — Nesta/Mexes — Silva — Urby/Mesbah

Aqua/Boa — Ambro/MVB/Merkel — Nocerino/Mesbah/Urby


Pato/Shaarawy Ibra


Nainggolan are set going to juve next sumer..


@vicente thanks . The agent of maxi lopez as said he will officially become a Milan player if we fail to get tevez.
Abbiati has return to training so also cassano is doing repetitive 100m and don’t forget Flamini also trained with the group yesterday .allegri says seedorf and bonera will start with mesbah…


In my understanding it just means that Galliani will wait for Tevez till 31st Jan and just in case he doesn’t arrive Lopez will be drafted in the final minutes of the transfer window. *. Final Decision on Maxi will be after thursday *. Milan want an option on Fiorentina’s Jovetic *. “No New Midfielder will come” – Galliani *. Galliani On Maxi Lopez – “The situation is very simple, we have an agreement with Catania and the agreement with the player.The medical? Take it easy, let’s see …We’ll wait for a few more days . Maxi Lopezis a player… Read more »


Tevez monetary factfile *. 28 October: Fined two weeks’ wages for breach of contract related to Bayern game (£400,000) *. 7 November: Tevez flies to Argentina without permission. He has been there since *. 22 December: City charge Tevez with gross misconduct for his actions since 7 November. (Six weeks’ fine: £1.2m). Given until 7 January to appeal, which he did *. 11 January: Appeal heard by directors and dismissed. Given until 30 January to appeal to Premier League *. Tevez has not been paid since the end of November (£1.7m) *. Shortly before the Bayern match he was formally… Read more »


That’s a lot of money,there must be something very wrong with that particular club,Robinho left on a similar manner,soon it might be Ballotelli,Hmmm i just hope he finds a club where he can play again.He has a lot of football in him


Danrondo! U are good. I will always rely on u for more updates on milan.


I certainly wish him well. The best scenario would be increased playing time and improvement so that he can contribute in the future. There is also the possibility he will be sold at the end of the loan.

Like I said, I wish him well because I do not think that his difficulties fitting into the team were a result of a poor work ethic. I do not know how much the language barrier played into it, but it was unfortunate that things have not gone better. Hopefully this move can mean it will go better in the future.
