QPR are struggling to find a buyer for Adel Taarabt.

The Fulham Chronicle says Taarabt will be forced to return to QPR on Thursday week if no club will pay his £65,000-a-week wages.

The midfielder's permanent move to AC Milan appears dead in the water because the Serie A side can't afford the £5million asking fee or his salary.

A second move to Napoli looks also set to founder for the same reasons.
