Dmitri Payet: Signed for Marseille earlier in the summer

The 26-year-old will move from Evian in a reported 2.5million euro deal.

"The agreement is subject to successfully passing the medical examination, which will take place this weekend," Marseille said in a statement.

Khlifa had been a long-term target of Montpellier, but when that deal failed to materialise Marseille swooped to sign a player who has scored 25 goals in two seasons at Evian.

His 13 Ligue 1 goals last season included an audacious 65-yard strike from his own half during a 4-0 win over Nice in May.

Subject to passing his medical, Khlifa will become Marseille's fourth signing of the summer after Dimitri Payet, Benjamin Mendy and Gianelli Imbula.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
