Real Madrid boss Mourinho: If Lass wants to go, he can

Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho insists he won't hold Lassana Diarra against his will.

Mourinho was asked about reports that Diarra wants to leave Real this month.

"I do not know if this is so," replied the Special One. "Lassana is a player I like. If he played from the start against Getafe, it was because he is a player I like and is useful.

"But my philosophy is that every player has a price and if a player wants to leave, he pays and leaves. And if you do not pay, then he must be with us the next day to train."
