Reports in France are suggesting that the Belgian international is set to leave the Stade Velodrome with a possible move to Manchester United in the offing.
It has also been suggested that van Buyten has called the press conference to announce a new deal with Marseille, but the move has intensified speculation.
United have been trailing the powerful defender fro some time and Peter Kenyon's claims that the club could be in for "an interesting week" has fuelled reports that van Buyten could be on his way to Old Trafford.
The player's agent Christophe Henrotay was not giving anything away over the player and was remaining coy about his decision to announce a press conference.
"I can't say anything about the press conference as Daniel does not want anything to come out," said Henrotay.
"I know what is going to happen but I cannot say."
The 25-year-old has also been linked with Barcelona as they look to bolster their side for next season.
The fact that the conference has been called by van Buyten and not Marseille suggests it may mean he is leaving and he is set to reveal his plans on Wednesday afternoon.
