The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have kept close tabs on any story concerning their club and Jose Mourinho but this particular report has certainly raised some eyebrows.
French outlet Le10Sport state Mourinho has his eyes on former Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra if he lands the position at Old Trafford, which would certainly be a controversial call.
The 31-year-old has vast experience of the Premier League and European football, as well as previous experience working with Mourinho, but whether he can improve the Manchester United midfielder is a different test entirely.
With United desperately needing quality midfield additions to improve the centre of their squad, fans will want a quality, established big0name to bolster their ranks and, unfortunately, Diarra isn’t the man to offer that boost.
For now it remains as speculation but it does raise questions as to what Mourinho has planned at Old Trafford, which has led some concerns for some fans at the bar.
Would this be a bad move? Let us know in the comments below!
