Sir Alex considers making move to bring Bernabeu man to Old Trafford.
Sir Alex Ferguson is rumoured to be focusing his attention on making a move for Real Madrid’s defensive midfield battler Lassana Diarra and believes he may be able to lure the former Arsenal and Chelsea man to Old Trafford this summer with the promise of regular first team football.
The 25 year old French international started just over half of Real Madrid’s matches last term and it looks fairly likely that the pint sized battler will find it even harder to cement a place in the Bernabeu starting eleven with Jose Mourinho on board. The new boss is apparently ready to raid the San Siro for new recruits and could well bring in central midfielders Esteban Cambiasso and Sulley Muntari to the club.
Either way Diarra’s time in Spain has been very up and down and a move back to the Premier League may well be something that would tempt Parisian born man. Whilst his attempts to prove himself at Chelsea and Arsenal failed he did have a marvelous year at Portsmouth which propelled him to the attentions of the La Liga giants who then splashed out £20m for his services in January 2009.
Ferguson could well feel that another defence minded midfielder is just what he may need to help his side to wrestle back Premier League control from Stamford Bridge. Owen Hargreaves has of course proved a major headache and whilst the likes of Darren Fletcher have excelled Diarra could well be a more suitable player to sit in that position, which could well give the Scottish international more space to express himself.
The Old Trafford boss has been told he has funds to invest in his squad and the £24m rated Real Madrid man would be a very wise purchase.
