That’s according to Le10sport, who claim the Marseille midfielder is keen to return to England and leave his home country.
Diarra played in 26 Ligue 1 games last season, as Marseille suffered a difficult season, finishing 13th. And it could be the final straw in the 31-year-olds decision making, as he sets his sights on a return to England.
The reports suggest Diarra’s agent is trying to push through a move to either United or Spurs, after spending 4 years in England with Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth.
Diarra has 33 international caps for France, but missed out on a chance to play at Euro 2016 with a knee injury, where France lost in the final to Portugal.
The 31-year-old won the FA Cup and League Cup with Chelsea in 2007, before once again lifting the FA Cup with Portsmouth the following season.
Diarra has also been linked with a move to Inter Milan to link up with Roberto Mancini.
