Reports emerging in Spain say that Lassana Diarra is on his way to join Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford. Diarra, or ‘Lass’, moved to Madrid for £20 million in 2008 but is now set to command only £12 million of Man United’s money as he comes back to the Premiership.
Personally, I think he is a quality player, and just the right man to be a long-term replacement for Owen Hargreaves. Comfortable in possession, can play anywhere, has experience in the Premiership and the Champions League, Diarra looks like the ideal January transfer swoop.
Is he enough though, for the Old Trafford faithful? Is he a marquee signing? Will Jose let him go?
I’d like to see him back in England, and not as a squad player like at Chelsea or Arsenal, but as the mainstay of a title-chasing midfield. Can he pull the strings for United’s march to glory?
