QPR firebrand Taarabt confident PSG will bid for him again

QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt believes PSG will bid for him in January.

The 22-year-old feels he is still wanted by the French outfit's wealthy owners, the Qatar Investment Authority, but accepts the former AC Milan and Inter Milan boss may have the final say.

Taarabt told Canal+: "He (Leonardo) called Flavio Briatore, but the first thing he said was: 'OK, but there is Adel's temper...'

"Flavio just replied: 'It is up to you to know how to manage it. We could manage it last season he helped us back into the Premier League.'

"That is just an excuse from Leonardo not to sign me because he had other priorities. He preferred (Jeremy) Menez, (Javier) Pastore and even wanted Ganso.

"The Qatar officials told me 'Do another great six months and in January we will be back'.

"However, I am under no illusion. I know I am not Leonardo's priority."
