It is reported that Liverpool are planning to launch a bid for Real Madrid’s midfield anchorman Mahamadou Diarra but one fails to understand just why. No, not why the report has surfaced but why the Reds would want the Mali international.
Liverpool already have their own defensive genius in Javier Mascherano and it would be prudent for the Merseyside club should they focus on signing him on a permanent contract instead of signing a new defensive medio. Moreover, they also let Mohamed Sissoko leave for Juventus in January.
Inter Milan too are linked to Diarra but the player is now firmly established as a regular under Bernd Schuster at Real Madrid. The chances that he could be lured away from the Bernabeu are slim.
