Diarra or Carroll?

French outlet L'Equipe have revealed that Manchester United are now interested in Tottenham target Lassana Diarra, the Marseille midfielder wanted by Inter Milan.

Diarra or Carroll?

The Frenchman is 31 (32 next March) and wants to join a club with Champions League football. The Sun reveal that he will turn down Louis van Gaal as Manchester United will only be in the Europa League next season.

The defensive midfielder has a contract with he French side until 2017 but is believed to be available for free this summer. despite signing a 4-year contract there is apparently a clause in it allowing him to leave for free after 12 months.

He has impressed so much to the extent he has made the French squad for the upcoming European Championships in the country this summer.

He has one Premier League title to his name, plus two FA Cups, one League Cup, one La Liga title and one Spanish cup to his mane. The experience he has gained at Chelsea, Arsenal and Real Madrid may be of benefit to Eric Dier as he develops his own game as a defensive midfielder.

he is on £31,480-a-week (40,000 EUR) at Marseilles after arriving and pocketing a £3.23 million (4.1m EUR) signing on bonus after a contract dispute with his former club Lokomotiv Moscow. Clearly he looks after himself financially, but as opposed to a player like Emmanuel Adebayor, he produces the goods on the pitch on a consistent basis. He has the right mentality, he has what Adebayor lacks.

" Yes, I said goodbye to the fans, it's the end of the season. But you never know what will happen in football. After, I will not hide it, there are great chances that I leave OM."

I'm not one for signing players over 30 but if he is free he could be a useful addition. I'd rather have Diarra coming on or playing instead of Tom Carroll, wouldn't you?

Carroll may have more miles than Diarra left, but is he ever going to get to Diarra's level, not in my book. For a defensive midfielder he is defensively weak . Give me Diarra any day.
