The mayor of Marseille has demanded that his city's football club do not sign Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood.

Sky Sports News reported on Tuesday that Marseille have agreed a deal worth £26.7m including add-ons for the forward.

Greenwood spent last season on loan at Getafe after being suspended by United following charges of attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault.

The Crown Prosecution Service dropped the charges, and Greenwood's long-term United future has remained under serious doubt, also amid a change of controllership at Old Trafford to INEOS.

Greenwood has now been given permission to have a medical at Marseille and discuss personal terms.

Marseille mayor Benoit Payan has said it would be "unacceptable" if Greenwood ends up joining.

Sky Sports News understands there is no guarantee the player accepts to go to the French club. Lazio remain interested and are keeping eye on the situation.

United have inserted a significant sell-on clause into the deal, which is thought to be between 40 and 50 per cent.
