Marseille midfielder Andre Ayew has admitted he could leave France at the end of the season, amid reported interest from Barcelona and Manchester United, reports Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old Ghanaian international has been heavily linked with a move away from Stade Velodrome this summer, after attracting admiring glances from a number of top European clubs.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in bringing Ayew to Old Trafford, as he looks to strengthen his midfield options ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.

Meanwhile, La Liga giants Barcelona are also thought to be monitoring the African's situation, with a view to making a rival offer for the Ligue 1 star's services when the transfer window reopens in July.

Both Manchester United and Barcelona have been offered encouragement in their pursuit of the midfielder, after Marseille intimated that they would be willing to listen to offers.

However, Ayew insists he will not be forced out, insisting he'll only sign for a club that matches his lofty ambitions.

"The club have made it clear if they receive a good offer they will listen to that, but I will not go just to please the club," he said. "I will go to a club that want to win trophies.

"But now I want to finish the season well with Marseille and qualify for the Champions League."
