Galliani: 'Taarabt and Rami fees set'

Adriano Galliani confirmed Milan “fees have already been set” to make Adil Rami and Adel Taarabt’s moves permanent.

Both players arrived on loan in January, the defender from Valencia and the Moroccan creative midfielder from QPR.

“We will talk about it in May, when the terms of the loans expire,” the Rossoneri CEO told Tuttomercatoweb.

“The fees have already been set.”

This week the FIFA agent who helped broker the deal said Milan would pay no more than €4m to buy Taarabt from QPR on a permanent basis.

Galliani also discussed other issues around the Rossoneri camp and warned against excessive criticism.

“A club must be measured over more than just a month. Over the last 15 years Milan always qualified for Europe and 13 times that was the Champions League. Even if we won’t play next season, we went further in this campaign than the other Italians.

“The team appears to be growing in physical and technical terms. I see great improvements and I hope they can be translated into results.”

Ricky Kaka has a clause allowing him to leave Milan in May if they fail to qualify for the Champions League, but hasn’t decided whether to activate it or not.

“There is no news. He has a contract that is well known and there’s nothing new to report.”
