Tuttomercatoweb spoke to to Taarabt about his possible departure from Loftus Road.

“My agent is working to find a solution. I’ve always said that I would like a change of air and I repeat that. There have been contacts with some Italian clubs, we’ll see. My goal is still to fight for a place in Europe.”

The attacker revealed the contacts have been most prevalent with Inter’s Roberto Mancini:

“Yes, there’s been contact. They are also sure of my physical condition, but I think we’re in the midst of negotiations that involve other players.

This comment came in response to Harry Redknapp’s claims that the player is “the worst professional” he’s ever worked with, that he’s “three stone overweight” and that he simply does not want to train. Taarabt took the above picture in response.

“The situation is complicated,” said the 25 year-old.  “All I can say is that I’ve trained a lot, even by myself because I don’t play very often. I’m fine, and I want to fight for something important.”

Editor’s note: I think it’s important to note his revelation confirms the rumors of a swap deal on the cards between M’Vila to QPR and Taarabt to Inter. Another interesting note is that Mancini has contacted the player. We know how convincing Mancini has been thus far.

What do you think, does he look overweight? Are you in favor of this possible swap deal? Do you think Inter could use a player like Taarabt? Let us know in the comment section!
