France midfielder Lassana Diarra has warned Jose Mourinho he wants more games with Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old has only played four matches, two as a substitute, in the Spanish top-flight this season under new boss Mourinho.

The former Portsmouth player, currently at France's training camp ahead of Euro 2012 qualifiers against Romania and Luxembourg, sought to play down transfer speculation last month.

But he has now clearly come out to warn he wants playing time.

Draw conclusions

He said: "I only play once every two matches. I obviously want to play more and if I am not satisfied, I will draw the conclusions.

"I am not at Real to watch the games. I want to play."

Manchester United are reported to be among the sides prepared to make a bid in January to land the France international if he decides to move on.

But he will not come cheap - reports in Spain suggest Real would want around €24million (£20m) for the player once the transfer window reopens.
