The Real Madrid careers of Mahamadou and Lassana Diarra appear to be coming to an end after both players stressed their desire to leave the club in the current transfer window, reports from Spain suggest.
Former Lyon midfielder Mahamadou has been isolated from first-team duties under coach Jose Mourinho this season, and Marca reports that the Malian has made his feelings to the club clear that he wants to move on.
Big-spending Malaga have been linked with an ambitious move for the enforcer, who may see an opportunity to kick-start his career as the Andalucian side look to assemble a new-look squad.
Lass, meanwhile, conducted a meeting yesterday with Los Blancos and his agent regarding the possibility of an improved contract, and should no offer be forthcoming, he will look to move on in the current market to play regular football.
English sides Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have both been linked with an offer for the Frenchman, as Mourinho looks to streamline his squad for the second half of the campaign, and with the funds bid for players of his own choosing.
