Manchester United are working on a deal for former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Lassana Diarra.
The midfielder has shone for Marseille this season after joining the French side on a free transfer from Lokomotiv Moscow last summer.
The 31-year-old has performed so well that he has earned a recall to the France squad and clubs are now circling.
One of those, according to Foot Mercato, is United and they have put the wheels in motion to sign Diarra this summer.
Scouts from the Premier League club have watched the Frenchman in action and they have returned with glowing reports.
However, as well as interest from United, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have also contacted Marseille over a potential transfer.
