QPR manager Neil Warnock is not expecting his transfer budget to increase should star man Adel Taarabt join Paris Saint Germain.
The Frenchman is wanted by the Ligue 1 giants, who have recently increased their offer for the ex-Tottenham playmaker.
R's co-owner Flavio Briatore is currently holding talks with the Parc des Princes outfit and if Warnock is being honest, he hopes the talks fail to bear fruit.
Even if PSG land their man in a big-money deal Warnock has confirmed that his sale will not swell the coffers as he looks to keep the Loftus Road outfit in the top-flight this season.
"Flavio Briatore is dealing with all the transfers at the moment. He's dealing with PSG and Adel himself," he told Sky Sports News.
"I've just got to wait until he tells me one way or another. It would be nice to get it done because we've got to plan ahead.
"Adel wins matches. He would set the Premier League on fire. I hope things break down if I'm honest.
"You've just got to move on. I don't think I'll be getting any of the money. I've just got to look for Bosmans and look for shrewd acquisitions, loan players etc.
"Try and do it on the smallest transfer fee there's ever been. We'll be trying to survive on that."
