Old Trafford boss keen to complete deal to sign Real Madrid star.
Lassana Diarra is pushing for a move out of Real Madrid.
Sport says Diarra is on his way out of Madrid this January after not being considered for this week’s Copa stalemate at Murcia.
The France midfielder has already voiced his frustrations with the lack of action he’s seen this season.

There is mounting speculation that Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to make his move in January to bring Lassana Diarra back to the Premier League. Apparently the good relationship between the Old Trafford boss and Bernabeu manager Jose Mourinho will help facilitate a deal between two clubs are known to have a frosty relationship.
The French international will cost around £16m to snap up the 25 year old and that seems a fair price for a player with his level of top notch experience. The pint sized battler would add more steel to the Man United midfield and his proven Premier League ability will also help persuade Ferguson to complete the deal.
Diarra appears to have no future at Real Madrid and would clearly jump at the chance of a move to the club and his arrival would help appease Wayne Rooney, and others, that the club does have the ambition, drive and pulling power to bring in big name players.
