Olympique Marseille and AS Monaco are in stiff competition with German Hertha Berlin side to sign Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah.
The Dutch-born Ghanaian versatile defender is being chased by the French giants after reportedly failing to agree to sign new deal with the Red Devils.
Fosu-Mensah wants regular first-team football, which he has not been getting under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, so will explore offers from elsewhere when he is free to speak to foreign clubs in January, before deciding on his future.
Fosu-Mensah, 23, has six months left on his current deal with the English powerhouse, and can in principle begin talks with another club.
The £5 million rated defender is seen as a good replacement for the 30-year-old Haroki Sakai at Olympique Marseille.
Meanwhile, German side Hertha Berlin and AS Monaco are currently in the transfer market for a defender to revamp their back with the Dutch youth international seen as the preferred candidate.
He is a product of United’s academy and has made 30 first-team appearances in total, while spending time out on loan at Fulham and Palace, and United have offered him the chance to recommit until 2024.
