Manchester United make solid offer for Marseille midfielder Lassana Diarra – report

Manchester United have made a concrete offer for Marseille defensive midfielder Lassana Diarra, according to BeIN Sports.

Diana still has three years remaining on his current Marseille contract but is reportedly likely to leave the club this summer.

He returned to Didier Deschamps’ French side last October after a five-year absence but is missing Euro 2016 after he was rule out with a knee injury.

BeIN Sports journalist Johnny Severin claims Man United and Chelsea have both tabled solid offers for Diarra.


Diarra allegedly had an uneasy relationship with his former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach, but he is familiar with the Portuguese bosses demands and could help our midfield adapt to his tactics.

However, with Morgan Schneiderlin, Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Daley Blind and Bastian Schweinsteiger at his disposal already his move would come as a shock.

United are already looking to re-sign Paul Pogba for a world record transfer fee and it is highly unlikely Mourinho would want to add another central midfielder to his squad.
