Newcastle & Liverpool target open to move for financial reasons

Marseille star Andre Ayew has confessed that he could leave the club in the not too distant future due to their financial difficulties, with Newcastle and Liverpool both keen.

The Ghana international is widely seen as one of l’OM’s very best players and despite links with Premier League sides he stayed put last month, but his contract is set to expire later this year.

And this has left the door ajar for a move, with the Ligue 1 giants struggling financially.

Like many French clubs, Marseille have been hit in terms of cash over the course of the past few years, and it’s suggested they’re struggling to pay members of staffs’ wages.

And Ayew has confessed that such difficulties mean that he could be allowed to leave in the not too distant future:

“OM have financial problems and they cannot afford to pay certain wages,” he is quoted by Goal.

“I am a Marseille player at this stage and could still stay here. My future is still open.

“There will soon be a meeting to discuss my future. But I will not accept a paycut to stay at OM. Every player wants to make progress, in all aspects.

“If the club want me to leave, then I will go. But I like Marseille.”

The 25-year-old is comfortable on either flank in an attacking position and has also been known to play as a ‘No. 10’.
