As reported here on the Transfer Tavern only 7 days ago, Lassana Diarra may move to Manchester United. The previous story https://www.footballtransfertavern.com/2010/12/premiership/united-to-steal-real-star-for-12m, showed ‘Lass’ to be keen on a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu. And now today, reports emerging from Spain show that the Frenchman has pleaded with Real to release him from his contract with immediate effect.
The only stumbling block (and admittedly it’s a fair sized one) is the admittance last week from Fergie that he won’t sign anyone this January. But surely if a player of Diarra’s calibre wants to join your club and your club are favourites by a mile to win the league this season, then does it make sense to move now and improve the squad from a position of strength?
It would be the final nail in the coffin for all his rivals, so come on Fergie, sign him up!
