Experienced Premier League midfielder hands Spurs and Man United transfer boost

DiarraThe ears of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have been pricked today, after a reported target suggested he will be on the market this summer.

Metro quotes former Premier League journeyman Lassana Diarra as suggesting he could leave current side Marseille this summer, who have thoroughly underperformed in their Ligue 1 campaign this season.

‘There is a great chance I leave Marseille. We will see. I’ve never spoken to other clubs. I hear a lot of things, I say nothing.’

Both Manchester United and Tottenham have been linked with the veteran Frenchman, who has a wealth of Premier League experience following spells with Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth, as well as Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Our landlord doesn’t quite see a space for him in either squad though and believes the Premier League duo would be making a bizarre move if they went for this man, suggesting there is much better options available in the market.

Would this player be good for either Premier League side? Let us know in the comments below!
