Tottenham Want Real Madrid Anchor Lassana Diarra

TOTTENHAM are rumoured to be plotting a move for yet another former Arsenal man (following the aquisition of Ol’ Billy Gallas last week) in the shape of Real Madrid’s third-or-possibly-fourth choice anchor man Lassana Diarra.

Madrid are keen to whittle down their squad in an attempt to accommodate new signings Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira and adhere to UEFA’s new 25-man squad guidelines with coach Jose Mourinho earmarking ‘Lass’ as one of the players he would be willing to jettison.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp first signed Diarra for £5.5 million from the Gunners whilst still in charge at Portsmouth back in 2008, and has never made a secret (which is totally out of character) of his admiration for the French international midfielder.

There’s no doubt that, on his day, Diarra is a very classy exponent of the holding arts, but do Tottenham really need to add yet another central midfielder to their ranks?

    I wouldnt mind old Dolphin head back at the Emirates as cover for Song.

    Hopefully, he’s learnt some humility during his time in the wilderness at Real.

    Dolphin head rofl..that guys head is raw. He’s a good player..the best thing about playing with Madrid is if there is another play who is as good as you and has more hype – you’re getting benched to hell. Better roll out Le ASS.
