Madrid:

Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra is looking for a move away from the Spanish club to boost his chances of winning a place in France's Euro 2012 squad, sports daily Marca reported on Tuesday.

Diarra has played mainly a substitute's role this season behind midfield rivals Sami Khedira and Xabi Alonso, and has been overlooked by national coach Laurent Blanc for the last few of France's games.

However, Real coach Jose Mourinho is keen for Diarra to remain, because "it's a substitute that guarantees everything," Marca reported.

Marca reported that several top English clubs such as Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in Diarra's services, along with Serie A side Juventus and Turkish outfit Fenerbahce.

Diarra previously played for Le Havre in France, English clubs Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth before joining Real Madrid in December 2008.
