Marseille’s Boubacar Kamara has less than six months left on his contract and his refusal to sign a new deal with the Ligue 1 side so far has caught the attention of other European clubs.

Four days ago, Corriere dello Sport reported Manchester United and AS Roma have ‘come forward for some time’ to try and convince the 22-year-old to choose them.

Gazzetta dello Sport now claim Amadou Diawara will return to the Serie A side after his participation in the AFCON, but he ‘can leave’. The Guinea international has offers from Italy and Spain, and could soon say goodbye to the Giallorossi in the winter market.

Diawara is out of José Mourinho’s plans at the Italian club, and after initially not having the desire to leave, he is now considering a change.

Roma have taken Sérgio Oliveira on loan from FC Porto, but Gazzetta state they are still looking for another midfielder. This is where the Ligue 1 man fits in and they are ‘awaiting developments’, but the Red Devils are also in the picture for Kamara.

It’s claimed ‘United are strong on the player’ and ‘seem to have overtaken all competitors’ for the Marseille midfielder. Roma chief Tiago Pinto, who has direct contact with Kamara, continues to monitor the situation.

Gazzetta doesn’t specify whether Manchester United are looking at Kamara for the January window or next summer, when he will be available on a free transfer if he refuses to sign a new deal with Marseille.
