Man Utd battle Tottenham for available Real Madrid midfielder Diarra

Manchester United and Tottenham are battling for Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra.

The Daily Star says both clubs are interested in signing 26-year-old midfield anchorman Diarra.

Bernabeu boss Jose Mourinho has held talks with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and the club have placed an £18m price tag on the Frenchman.

Diarra played for both Arsenal and Chelsea before joining Real in January 2009 from Portsmouth for £20m.

Sir Alex Ferguson is interested after Owen Hargreaves' release and Paul Scholes' retirement.

Tottenham's boss Harry Redknapp is on alert after he worked with Diarra at Pompey.
