Belgian defender Jason Denayer’s agent spoke to Foot Mercato today, confirming that talks had taken place with Marseille.
He had the following to say:
“I can confirm that Marseille are interested and that we have had very, very positive discussions with them. It is now more up to City to say yes or no. There are lots of candidates, many clubs have contacted me. Two are very interested, Marseille and a Turkish club. They have also contacted City directly. They have shown themselves to be concretely interested in having Jason and are ready to give him an important place in their team.”
It is also understood that several English sides have, in the last few hours, pushed their interest forward. According to our colleagues at RMC, talks are currently ongoing between Manchester City and Marseille concerning a loan deal.
