Diarra stays

05/28/2008

Real Madrid defensive miedfielder, Diarra will play for Real Madrid next season, despite the interrest from Inter Milano. The Mali captain seemed to have lost the battle with Gago for a place in starting eleven, and because of that, he’s morale was pretty affected, being unsure about his future. Altough he permanently stated that he wants to continue in Madrid, his situation was unclear. Speculations that Real Madrid would sign Roma’s Daniele de Rossi or Alberto Aquilani made Diarra’s future even more unclear.

Real Madrid sports director, Pedja Mijatovic had a meeting with Bernd Schuster and agreed that Diarra is needed next season in the Madrid squad, as he is a important piece in Schuster’s plan.

Another theory is that Inter Milano is no more interrested in signing Diarra, mainly because ex-coach Mancini was sacked yesterday and the new coach seems to be Mourinho. The portuguese manager would be interrested to land Chelsea’s Michael Essien.
