Both Marseille and Hertha Berlin are interested in signing Manchester United defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah in January.
The Dutchman is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season, and although the 22-year-old has been offered a new three-and-a-half-year deal by the Premier League club, he has yet to accept their terms.
That also means that he is free to negotiate with foreign clubs from January 1st.
Fosu-Mensah is concerned about his lack of game time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka the clear first choice at right-back. And, in the Boxing Day draw at Leicester, he was not even named among the nine substitutes on United’s bench.
He has not made a Premier League squad since October, although he did come on as a substitute in the Champions League games against Istanbul Basaksehir and RB Leipzig.
Born in Amsterdam to Ghanaian parents, Fosu-Mensah began with the Ajax academy before moving to England and United in 2014.
