Transfer Update: England bound? Marseille president hints at Ayews destination

Andre Ayew will leave French club Olympique Marseille at the end of the season, the club president has confirmed.

England could be a very likely destination from the president’s comments despite Andre Ayew reported to be closing in on a move to AS Roma.

Marseille president Vincent Labrune said:
‘We can’t keep Ayew. He is a very important player for OM but we can’t offer him the kind of money English clubs can offer. The French financial system is complicated and we can’t offer 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 of 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 the great career that he deserves in England or somewhere else.’

English Premier League clubs Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Everton, Liverpool and Swansea City have all been linked with the player.

Manchester City are close to signing former Chelsea player Kevin De Bruyne from German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg. The 23-year-old will cost around £35 million for the transfer move according to the Daily Mirror.

Liverpool player Jordon Ibe has agreed a five-year contract with the English club which is set to be signed next week, the Telegraph reports.

Manchester United signing Memphis Depay wants to emulate the steps of World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo at the Old Trafford club.

Southampton director of football Les Reed is confident Manchester United target and England international Nathaniel Clyne will extend his contract with the club. The 24-year-old’s contract with the club runs out next year.

England international Patrick Bamford has attracted interest from Chelsea, Everton, Aston Villa and Crystal Palace. The 21-year-old has been phenomenal for English Championship club Middlesbrough.
