Marseille and Hertha Berlin are both said to be prepared to pay a small transfer fee to sign the Manchester United defender next month if it means getting ahead of the competition.

Manchester United have offered Timothy Fosu-Mensah a new three-and-a-half-year contract - but the defender is considering his options amid interest from clubs abroad.

Marseille and Hertha Berlin are among those keen to sign the 22-year-old, and he will be available for a small compensation fee next summer when his current deal at Old Trafford runs out.

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.
