ADEL TAARABT says his agent is talking with Milan but claims they are not a top club these days.
Milan will sign a forward in case Alexandre Pato and Robinho will both be sold in January – a scenario that seems very likely considering Adriano Galliani’s trip to Brazil which he will use to try and sell the players.
Milan have been linked with moves for Didier Drogba and Mario Balotelli but it seems that Taarabt is in Milan talks and he claims he’s interested in moving to Milan even if he doesn’t quite know how to say it.
“I would only refuse offers from the big English clubs, if Milan made me an offer,” the Queens Park Rangers man, who also plays for the Moroccan national team, is quoted as saying on La Gazzetta dello Sport. “My agent is in talks with Galliani, but it depends on what happens with Robinho and Pastore.
“Milan aren’t going through a glorious period now, and they’re no longer a part of the top clubs. However, if I joined Milan then it would open up the doors for me to great clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona. My friend Kevin-Prince Boateng is also at Milan. When we were at Tottenham he was often in the stands, so I think that I have a chance too.” The midfielder / winger joined more than 130 appearances with QPR.
Taarabt says he would reject offers from bid English sides for Milan, because that will open his doors to the real big clubs he wants like Barcelona and Madrid. He may be a skilled player but not a skilled talker.
