Man United target Ayew could leave Marseille

Man United and Barcelona target Andre Ayew has fuelled speculation about his future by claiming that current club Marseille will sell him if the price is right, according to ESPN.

The 23-year-old is thought to currently earn around £300k per month, making him the second highest earner in the league behind Mathieu Valbuena, but with the club looking to reduce their wage bill, Ayew has accepted he could be on the way out of the Stade Velodrome in the summer.

He said: “The club has been clear: if they get a good offer, they’ll listen. But I’m not going to leave just to please them. If I go, it’ll be to a club capable of winning trophies.”

Ayew has struggled for form this season, especially compared to performances last year, but recently revealed that he has been struggling with tendonitis in the knee, but is thought to remain resolute in his efforts to help Marseille achieve as much as they can this season.

They currently sit 2nd in Ligue 1 and are hoping for a return to next year’s Champions League competition.

He continued: “What’s important is to work, to do what I can to help the team win the game,” he said. “If I have to fight and battle through things to help the team move forward, I’ll continue to do so right to the end. We’re at a stage where it’s not the individual that counts, it’s the team. So, as long as the coach is happy, I’ll continue.”

Man United have identified Ayew as a potential candidate for a move to Old Trafford in the summer, but face competition from Barcelona as well as a host of other clubs for his signature.
