Marseille president Labrune tells Andre Ayew he can leave - Arsenal, Liverpool alerted

Marseille have told their winger Andre Ayew that he can leave the club if the right offer arrives after the Ghanaian approached the club about his decision to quit the French giants.

Andre Ayew wants to leave Marseille after clashing with coach.

Marseille have told their winger Andre Ayew that he can leave the club if the right offer arrives after the Ghanaian approached the club about his decision to quit the French giants.

The news has sparked hopes of English sides Liverpool and Arsenal that they can sign the Ghanaian this summer.

This comes after the 23-year-old met the club Marseille president Vincent Labrune on Wednesday to announce to him his decision to leave after clashing with coach Elie Baup over his starting place in the team.

Ayew clashed with Baup over his desire to play as a central striker rather that out on the wing, which is not his favourites position.

Sources close to the son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele have told GHANAsoccernet.com that Ayew was promised the playmaker position at the end of last season when he held clear-the-air talks with Marseille hierarchy over his future at the club.

However, this has not materialized in the club’s pre-season matches as the Ghanaian has been played only on the wings which led to his decision to meet the club president Labrune to tell him about his decision to leave.

“Ayew has informed me of his intentions. If an offer from a big club comes in and we like it, I will consider it,” Marseille president Vincent Labrune said.

Marseille, who were previously reluctant to sell the player to potential buyers, are willing to sell him for about $23m this summer.

The 23-year old made 35 appearances for the Ligue One side last season, scoring nine goals.

He led Marseilles to a runners-up spot in the league with rivals Paris Saint-Germain winning the title.

Liverpool, Arsenal and AC Milan could lead the charge to sign him.

    I pity his life.He has let pride to get into his brain.Not that he is even one of the top wingers in the world.Even players that are far better than him cant try that.Essien’s original position wasn’t Defensive midfield,but did he make quarrel with his coach when he was transformed into that?.Or did he quarrel with mourinho when he was played at right-back in madrid.He is feeling like a big player already when he has achieved nothing.He wants to go to arsenal or liverpool right?.Let me see whether he would tell wenger that he wants to play behind the striker if wenger plays him at the wings.
    His ass would rot on the bench.
    If he wants to achieve,he has to let go of pride and humble himself or else he’ll just fade away.

    If he must leave, then he should join AC Milan. The English clubs won’t do him good since he lacks speed in his play. Milan will help him transform into a superstar.

    @Pk dee,i got my facts right.When drogba was transformed to a striker,he never fought with his coach or threaten to leave marseille.On henry,he was old enough and has achieved everything in football both in trophies and personally(Twice in the top 3 world best players).A big player in world football.
    But what has ayew achieved?.Marseille don’t have much stars compare to arsenal or liverpool,so he can try that there.But if arsenal or any big club signs him,if he tries that there he would be benched and replaced with more quality better players.
    I pray he would even be guaranteed a regular starter if he signs for any of these big clubs.Because these big clubs are flooded with better worldclass wingers and attacking midfielders.So trying that in any big club would only destroy his career.

      who are you to determine what the future holds for him. if you want be the best in life you have to be able to take on the best. i can see you not confident in your own ability. ayew is a fighter and will do just okay

    Ayew feels he underperforms on the wings . The manager should listen to him . It’s for the good of the team.
