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, with hometown club Marseille a dream destination.

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."

On the prospect of joining Marseille, he added: "It is the city where I grew up, where my parents live. It would be nice to go back home, to my...

Marseille manager Franck Passi calls for patience after disappointing start

Marseille's Georges Kevin N'Koudou is nearing a move to Spurs, Alison Bender looks at what the Frenchman can offer the North London club.
Franck Passi's new-look Marseille side have struggled at the start of the season.

Marseille manager Franck Passi insists there is no cause for panic, despite his team taking only one point from their first two matches of the Ligue 1 season.

Following a 0-0 draw at home to Toulouse on the opening weekend, Marseille conceded a goal in the first minute of their game at Guingamp on Sunday before slumping to a 2-1 defeat.

The 2010 French champions finished 13th last season, but Passi, 50, is not feeling any extra pressure after a slow start to his first full campaign in charge.

"I...

Yannis Salibur and Jeremy Sorbon both found the net as Guingamp stretched their unbeaten start to the Ligue 1 campaign with a 2-1 win over Marseille.

Salibur's first-minute goal stunned the visitors, who never fully recovered from that early setback.

Marseille goalkeeper Yohann Pele was at fault for the opener, which came after just 32 seconds of play.

Sorbon then turned in Lucas Deax's near-post cross just ahead of the hour, to double the hosts' advantage.

Marseille were frustrated as Toulouse held them to a Ligue 1 goalless draw at the Stade Velodrome.

The nearest Marseille came to scoring was when a swift 25th-minute break out ended with Florian Thauvin setting up Remy Cabella with a back heel.

But Cabella poked the ball against a post and summer signing Bafetimbi Gomis was thwarted twice in two second-half minutes by Alban Lafont in the Toulouse goal.

Toulouse's best chances came in the first half.

Florian Thauvin chose Marseille over Lazio for coach Franck Passi

Florian Thauvin agreed another temporary loan with Marseille.

Florian Thauvin has said that Marseille manager Franck Passi is "90 percent" of the reason why he chose to return to the club rather than join Lazio.

Having spent the second half of last season on loan at Marseille from Newcastle, Thauvin, 23, agreed another temporary deal last week.

"I had the chance to go to Lazio," the attacking midfielder said in an interview filmed by Marseille.

"But I preferred to come back here because it's a place I know well and a place that's close to my heart.

"I have...
