Andre Ayew hints at Marseille exit
Ghana midfielder Andre Ayew says he is discussing his future with his family after reports that he might quit French giants Olympique Marseille.
The 22-year-old has been linked with some stellar European clubs and he recently signed for influential agent Jean-Pierre Bernès.
Marseille’s precarious financial position and their inability to qualify for the UEFA Champions League could push him out.
But his suitors must be ready to meet the 18 million Euros buy-out clause in his contract.
”I’m very young and it’s true I have been in Marseille for a very long time and I have had the opportunity to play all the competitions in the world, but now I’m going to sit down with my family and make a decision,” Ayew said.
”One day I’m going to move from Marseille, but when I don’t know yet. I’m very happy at the club and I’m not in a hurry to go.
He added that: ”My staying at Marseille will not kill me, me going will also be a very sad moment for me but at the moment I’m just planning on strengthening my shoulder, hoping that I’m not going to feel any pain and soon I will be back on the pitch.”
Ayew underwent surgery in April to correct a problematic shoulder injury.
