Marseille chief Zubizarreta: Mandanda? Casillas? I prefer to work in shadows...

Olympique Marseille chief Andoni Zubizarreta is tightlipped over their pursuit of Crystal Palace goalkeeper Steve Mandanda.

Mandanda is being linked with a return to OM after just 12 months in London.

Along with Mandanda, Real Madrid legend Iker Casillas, currently with Porto, is also interesting OM.

But Zubi insisted last night: "I do not comment on the players under contract elsewhere. If I say no on a name, another name will come out. You know better than me how it happens on the Internet, with social networks ... I understand that I'm being asked the question, and it might even be easier for me to say, 'No, yes...'. But we would not finish.

"I even have calls from agents who tell me, 'I read in the press that my player is on your list...'. It is sometimes difficult to answer, because sometimes they are very interesting players.

"It's hard to say, 'No, your player does not interest me'. I prefer to listen, read and work in the shadows."
