France`s Lassana Diarra hints at Real Madrid departure

Clairefontaine: France midfielder Lassana Diarra hinted on Tuesday he could leave Real Madrid unless he gets a chance to play more often.

"I only play once every two matches. I obviously want to play more and if I am not satisfied, I will draw the conclusions," Diarra told reporters at France`s training camp ahead of Euro 2012 qualifiers against Romania and Luxembourg.

"I am not at Real to watch the games. I want to play," added the diminutive defensive midfielder, who joined from Portsmouth last season.

Diarra, 25, has played four matches, two as a substitute, in La Liga this season.

France host Romania in Group D on Saturday and Luxembourg three days later in their Euro 2012 qualifying campaign.
