As Jose Mourinho is on the verge to join Manchester United, it is rumored that the ex-Real Madrid star Lassana Diarra is ready to join the Devil’s side in the coming transfer window.
The 31-year-old midfielder enjoyed a pretty good season with Marseille after joining from Lokomotiv Moscow last summer.
The defensive midfielder has been selected in the French squad for Euro 2016, but he wants to leave Marseille as the club failed to qualify for the champions league.
Diarra played with Jose Mourinho while his time at Chelsea, and he states that he is ready to reunite with the Portuguese manager yet again.
I am a free agent,’ Diarra told L’Equipe.
‘There’s a clause in my contract that allows me to leave if we did not qualify for European football.
‘I do not want to enter a war with Marseille and I don’t think there will be one. I hope Marseille will stick to their word.
‘I will never forget Marseille and the fans, who showed me a lot of affection. I do not know yet where I will play next season. I am calm about my future, there’s time. I have not signed for PSG.
‘Mourinho? I know him well. I have enjoyed some great times with him. He is a coach I really like. But we will see what happens next season.’
