Andre Ayew is set to leave Marseille for the Premier League this summer, according to the club’s president, and could join Arsenal, Liverpool or Manchester United.
The Ghanian ace’s contract expires next summer and the 25-year-old has refused to pen a new deal, instead indicating that he wants to leave Ligue 1 this summer.
Vicent Labrune, Marseille president, has indicated the club are helpless in the scenario- and stated that a move to the Premier League, where United, Arsenal and Liverpool await, is highly likely. He said:
“We can’t keep Ayew. He is a very important player for OM but we can’t offer him the kind of money that English clubs can offer.”
“The French financial system is complicated and we can’t offering him an equivalent salary to what he can earn in England.”
“And equally, we can’t ask Ayew, who we love and is an icon for our team, to accept a lower salary.”
“That makes no sense so unfortunately he is going to quit the club and we hope he has a great career that he deserves in England or somewhere else.”
