Villarreal and Monaco are among clubs showing interest in Marseille captain Steve Mandanda, according to France Football.
The long-serving footballer will be out of contract in the summer, but he was, nonetheless, prepared to consider staying at Stade Velodrome.
However, with Marseille enduring a season to forget, the latest reports suggest that the France international has decided to leave for greener pastures.
La Liga high flyers Villarreal reportedly plan to bring Mandanda to El Madrigal seeing that their first choice goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is likely to return to PSG when his loan spell comes to an end.
However, while some Premier League clubs are also casting admiring glances his way, France Football claims that Monaco will attempt to win the chase for the experienced goalkeeper.
Namely, the Principality club chiefs have not been satisfied with the performances of Danijel Subasic and they want Mandanda to challenge the Croat for a starting berth next season.
