Published Add your comment

Manchester United have turned their attention to former Arsenal midfielder Lassana Diarra, after Real Madrid agreed a deal to sign German ace Sami Khedira.

New Madrid boss Jose Mourinho now has an overload of midfielders after agreeing a five-year deal with Khedira.

The e=former Chelsea manager wants to keep Kaka, Rafael van der Vaart and Fernando Gago, who have both been linked with move to the Premier League.

In addition to these three, the Whites have Xabi Alonso, Esteban Granero, Mahamadou Diarra and Lass all fighting it out for three places in the centre of the park.

Therefore, the latter two – both Diarras – are now up for sale and Sir Alex Ferguson is willing to offer around 24 million euros (£20 million), the same price Real paid Pompey, to lure Lassana back to England, according to Spanish daily AS.

Ferguson has been promised cash by chief executive David Gill if he needs it and could make Diarra his next signing.

With Paul Scholes turning 36 in November and close to retiring, Owen Hargreaves struggling with injury problems and questions remaining over Michael Carrick central midfielders remain a priority for the Red Devils.
