Real Madrid made the move at the buzzer. Lass Diarra is leaving the club and is headed for Russian team Anzhi, where he will be joining Samuel Eto'o. José Mourinho and Florentino Pérez have signed Michael Essien on a one-year loan to replace the French midfielder.
Lass's move to Anzhi hasn't been confirmed yet, the Russian transfer market is still open for five more days, so the player will have to undergo medical tests before signing his contract. The Russian club would pay around 10M€ to get Lass.
