United - Lassana Diarra Bid?

United - Lassana Diarra Bid?

Could Manchester United be about to launch a raid on Real Madrid?

After the Spanish club splashed out some more cash to purchase the German star, Sami Khedira, one of the tabloids has us as leading contenders to try and snare their French midfielder, Lassana Diarra.

Diarra is rumoured to have a buy-out clause of £19 million in his contract but an overload in the midfield department means he could probably be snapped up for a lot less than that.

The midfielder certainly has a good pedigree having already played Premier League football for Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth before moving on to the La Liga.

Unfortunately, Diarra missed the recent World Cup after training at altitude saw him diagnosed with sickle-cell anaemia, a condition that no longer affects him.

At twenty-five years of age he still has a lot to offer, whether his future does lie at Old Trafford or not we`ll no doubt find out in the days to come!

Remember you are broke - which means no signings until next year when it will be an obscure South American and a Premiership reserve.

Sorry, but sickle cell anemia is a chronic condittion caused by a mutation of the red blood cels (they basically carry less oxygen and tend to get stuck in small capillaries etc.). Sorry to be a bit pedantic, but it never goes away! Not sure how it woud affect him as a player though TBH. He's a funny one Diarra - always gets big clubs (Chelsea, Arsenal (sorry Pompey fans, won't count you) then Madrid, but never seems to stick around for very long. Could he be another Anelka, thinking he's too good for everyone?

No thanks. He's not that great plus as mentioned by FCB he's diseased and more than likely will be effected heavily by it. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't that the reason he didn't play at the world cup.
