Daniel van Buyten's agent has left the door open for a potential long-term move to Manchester City.
Marseille, however, are believed to have slapped a 4million price tag on the defender and that could prove to be a stumbling block.
Van Buyten's loan spell at City came to a premature end in March when he was injured.
But by that time, only two months after arriving, he had won over manager Kevin Keegan.
