Adel Taarabt sparks civil war at PSG
ADEL TAARABT has sparked a major civil war at Paris St Germain.
The French club’s Arab owners have already tabled a £13.5million bid for the QPR star who seems certain to move.
Yet former AC Milan coach Leonardo, now a director at PSG, walked out of negotiations because he did not want to spend more than £7m of his budget on the Moroccan.
Leonardo – employed by new PSG owners Qatar Sports Investments – had to be ordered back to the negotiating table.
He feels Taarabt, 22, is still unproven and wants to keep funds to tempt St Etienne star Blaise Matuidi and Benfica defender Luisao.
