|Diarra and Adebayor could play for Tottenham Hotspurs|
Real Madrid has been forced to sell him, although Mourinho wanted the player in the template, because the French do not admit his status as bench player. For this reason, Lass Diarra trained outside the team throughout the preseason, did not travel to American and Asian tours and has not play a single minute on a match. He also lost his number 10, the Mesut Özil's new number.
In two and a half years, the player's performance in Madrid has been uneven. He played 89 games and scored one goal. Khedira's arrival last summer sentenced him to the bench. Now, Sahin and Coentrao will close further the road to the starting line up.
Lass has opted for the London club because his ambition is to return to the Premier League. Even he is willing to lower his wage by 20 percent, as is said in the Britain islands. Harry Redknapp, the Spurs coach, spoke with the player to convince him. The veteran coach was his manager at Portsmouth, the best experience of French midfielder in England where formed a tandem that gave to the modest club the FA Cup 2008.
If he eventually signs for Tottenham, Lass could meet his former teammate Emmanuel Adebayor, who also negotiated his departure from Manchester City in the direction of White Hart Lane.
