The France international, 29, is regarded as one of the most effective holding players in the game and has been linked with some of the continent's finest sides.

There has been plenty of speculation about a switch to England, with Manchester City believed to be interested earlier in the season.

Liverpool are also understood to have sent scouts to watch Diarra on several occasions, while Newcastle reportedly want to bring him to St James' Park.

However, when asked which club he dreams about playing for, Diarra revealed in the French press that his preferred destination would be Italy.

Magnificent

"Milan because of their players and their history," he said. "The San Siro is a magnificent stadium.

"[Marco] Van Basten, [Frank] Rijkaard, [Ruud] Gullit, [Roberto] Donadoni, [Paolo] Maldini,[Franco] Baresi, that was a great team."

Diarra also spoke to skysports.com about his hopes of playing at the highest level possible.

He said: "At the end of the season everything will be clear. All players want to prove themselves in top leagues in Europe.

"I am no different, but I am at Bordeaux at the moment."
