Queens Park Rangers’ Moroccan forward Adel Taarabt said on Monday he is keen to join Manchester United, “the club of his dreams”.

"I'd leave London only for Manchester United, the club of my dreams, where there is no number 10," Taarabt told La Gazzetta dello Sport on Monday

"For Mr Ferguson I'd also stay silent on the bench and I would work hard."

Taarabt produced a string of superb performances with QPR this season, scoring four goals in 14 matches.

The 23-year also revealed he is targeted by Italian side AC Milan but said any move is contingent on other factors.

Milan are struggling this season as they lie seventh in the 20-team league table.

"Me to AC Milan?  My agent speaks with (AC Milan CEO, Adriano) Galliani, but my future depends on Robinho and Pastore," Taarabt added.

"Milan aren't going through a glorious period now, and they're no longer a part of the top clubs, but making it big with the Rossoneri could open the door to huge clubs like Real Madrid or Barcelona."
