Redknapp hopes to Diarra against Man U
London: Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp hopes to sign Real Madrid``s Lassana Diarra ahead of the game against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday.
The Spurs boss has admitted his interest in the midfielder and a deal with Real Madrid, 26, worth in the region of six million pounds moved forward yesterday, The Sun reports.
The continuous injuries of Tom Huddlestone and Sandro have forced Redknapp to negotiate talks for Diarra.
Redknapp has, however, ruled out signing West Ham midfielder Scott Parker because the eight million pounds demanded by the Hammers for the 31-year-old is not rated value for money.
