Diarra agrees Real move

Real Madrid and Portsmouth have confirmed that midfielder Lassana Diarra has agreed to leave Fratton Park to join the Spanish club in January and will undergo a medical tomorrow. Pompey agreed a deal with the Spanish giants for the 23-year-old midfielder earlier this week, with the fee reported to be in the region of £20m.

At least this brings this saga to a close, without our reported interest ever becoming official - in terms of a bid at least.

Diarra would undoubtedly have been a good addition to our current squad, not least for it would allow Kompany to move back into defence.

Back to the drawing board for Hughes then.

vote it up!

Im not so sure diarra wud have been such a good signin anyway and specially at 20 million, i think there is better than him i know he has lots of potential but i think we cud get a lad better than him at his age for 20 million. plus he was in a midfield we cut thro and scored 6 goals a really top player wudnt of let that happen a top player wud of took the pressure on his shoulders better than he did, he didnt do that.
