Manchester United target Lassana Diarra does not plan to leave Real Madrid in the winter - agent

Midfielder 'satisfied' at club
Lassana Diarra's agent has reiterated that the midfielder will not leave Real Madrid during the transfer window.

The French international plans to stay put in Spain at least until the end of the season, as he has no reason to leave at the current time.

"I can say that Diarra will not leave Real Madrid in the winter. Team coach Jose Mourinho never questioned his professionalism in training or in matches," John Williams was quoted as saying by Marca.

"Lass is satisfied and will fight for a place in the team," the agent continued, also confirming that French side Paris Saint-Germain have not contacted anyone associated with the player about a transfer.

Diarra, who has two-and-a-half years left on his current deal, has been linked with a move to LA Galaxy and Manchester United, but Jose Mourinho is clear he does not want the defensive midfielder to leave.

The midfielder has risen 186 places in the latest edition of the Castrol Rankings and is now rated as the 674th best player currently plying his trade in one of the top five leagues in Europe.
