Crystal Palace goalkeeper Steve Mandanda met with Marseille Sporting Director Andoni Zubizarreta about a possible return to the Ligue 1 club last month, according to our colleagues at L’Équipe.
The news first filtered out last night when RTL evoked the possibility of a Mandanda return. The French international occupied the first choice goalkeeper slot upon his arrival, but following an injury, Wayne Hennessey appears set to retain his place despite Mandanda’s return to fitness.
Mandanda is understood to be nostalgic about a possible return to Marseille, having left the club in summer so that it could raise finances rather than anything else. The door appears to be open.
More undoubtedly to follow in the coming days…
