Benfica’s Adel Taarabt ‘in talks with several clubs’ about a transfer

Adel Taarabt is in talks with several teams about a move away from Benfica.

Taarabt, 27, signed a five-year contract with Benfica in 2015 but has failed to break into the Portuguese side’s starting XI.

He told France Football: “I just want a club that has trust in me. We are in talks with several clubs.”
“The situation here is difficult. At first it was an interesting challenge, they wanted me as a replacement for Nico Gaitan but he stayed and only joined Atletico Madrid this summer.

“On top of that, when I signed Jorge Jesus was coach but then, a month later, he joined Sporting CP. A new coach arrived [Rui Vitoria] and I do not fit into his plans.

“I train and train but he does not give me a chance, even in friendly matches. I am not a player he chooses.”
