Taarabt in, Abate out - report

Adel Taarabt is set to stay at Milan, but reports claim that Ignazio Abate could well leave the club over the summer.

Tuttosport follow quotes from the Morocco international’s agent yesterday, insisting that the Rossoneri have completed a deal with Queens Park Ranger to keep the playmaker beyond his initial loan deal.

The paper believes that the deal could rise to €5m, as the Rossoneri look to re-establish themselves as a top Serie A side after this season’s slip down the table.

The trequartista is set to come in for next term, but Abate looks likely to leave the club, it has been reported in La Repubblica.

The defender is being courted by Lazio, who are in need of a right-back, and see the Italy international as an ideal signing.

The 27-year-old has fallen behind Mattia De Sciglio in the pecking order at Milan, and is said to be keen on a move.
