I'm so tired of Marca. Yesterday we published a report that Lassana Diarra was about to join Tottenham Hotspur for €12 million; we were pretty excited, because he's been nothing but trouble for Real Madrid for the past few months. He clearly wants out; we clearly don't want him anymore.

So what's the problem? Well, we trusted Real Madrid Fanboy Tabloid #1, who reported that the deal with Spurs for Lass was "done."

Well, of course, today Lass crushed those rumors:

"The information about my departure is a lie. There is no agreement with Tottenham and I do not think there will be." Source: ESPN.com

Oops? Don't worry, there won't be another Neymar-esque video of me smashing my keyboard for falling for this nonsense one too many times.

OR WILL THERE?!
