Moscow, Sep 10 – New Anzhi Makhachkala signing Lassana Diarra has denied his move from Real Madrid football club was motivated by money.

Anzhi announced the transfer of the 27-year-old French international midfielder last week, the big-spending club’s highest-profile signing of the summer.

Neither Anzhi nor Real has disclosed the value of the transfer, though Spanish media have reported a sum of 5 million euros.

“I earn quite a lot. I’ve earned a lot of money before,” Diarra said at his official unveiling at RIA Novosti Monday.

“But if you want, come to one of my matches and take a look at how I play, how I give my all. At these games I’ll show all my qualities, then you will be able to say why I came here.”

Diarra has signed a three-year deal at Anzhi with the option of a further year.

Diarra, 27, switched to Real in 2008 from Portsmouth, but failed to become a regular starter, making 117 appearances and scoring four goals since then.

A French international since 2007, he has made 28 appearances but is yet to score a goal for the national team. Injury kept him out of Euro 2012.
