Portsmouth Accept £20m Bid for Lassana Diarra From Real Madrid

lassan-diarraPortsmouth midfielder Lassana Diarra likely will move to Real Madrid, after the club accepted a £20m bid for the 23-year-old Frenchman.

The former Chelsea player moved to Arsenal in the summer of 2007, but left for Portsmouth in the winter after becoming the victim of Mathieu Flamini’s ascendance.

Madrid initially bid £9m for the player, but Portsmouth held firm for £20m.  Portsmouth’s debt and pending sale, probably decided their acceptance.

If the deal goes through, it’s an excellent, if a bit pricy, signing for Real Madrid.  Diaara’s a versatile, skillful midfielder and can fill in for his unrelated namesake Mahamadou Diarra.

Manchester City had rumored interest in Diarra.
