Tottenham Hotspur are working on a deal to sign Lassana Diarra from Real Madrid.
The former Portsmouth midfielder is wanted by former boss Harry Redknapp at Spurs to bolster his midfield.
Real Madrid are willing to allow the French international to leave but are pushing for a clause which gives them first option on Gareth Bale when his contract begins to run down. We hear (from the well respected CorlukaModric via SC) that Spurs are so far refusing to add this clause into the deal and that the deal is not dependent on this clause.
WOULD YOU ADD IN THE BALE CLAUSE? WOULD DIARRA BE A GOOD FIT AT SPURS? HAVE YOUR SAY BELOW
