Adel Taarabt has conceded that he is still holding out for a move to Milan this summer.
The Morocco international was on loan at San Siro for the second half of last term, but has so far failed to attract the attentions of the Rossoneri this time around.
Pippo Inzaghi’s side have completed the signing of Fernando Torres on a two-year loan deal, with the Queens Park Rangers trequartista now thought to be surplus to Milan’s requirements.
But the 25-year-old has insisted that he would still ‘love’ to represent the club again.
“I love Milan, and I was really happy there. I hope to return as long as there is a chance of it happening,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I will always support Milan even if the transfer doesn't happen.
“I hope that Milan can return where they belong: playing and maybe winning Champions League.”
