Manchester United and Barcelona's rivalry will continue after the Champions League final as it emerged that both teams are vying for the signature of Andre Ayew, French media reports.

The 21-year-old impressed at last year's World Cup for Ghana, as well as for Marseille in Liege 1 this season.

And the two Champions League finalists are thought to be leading the race for Ayew, son of former Ghana captain Adebi Pele, who is amazed at the interest from United and Barcelona.

"It is fantastic to hear these stories, even if it's just through newspapers," Ayew told

"I am delighted to be linked with two powerhouses of world football. It means I have improved.


"I have not got a favourite, I am just speechless!

"It would be a dream to join one of them, but I am living the dream here with Marseille as well and also looking forward to a strong finish to the season."

Ayew's versatility would be very attractive to both Barcelona and United, with both sides looking to re-jig their squad ahead of the new season.

During last year's World Cup, Ayew played as a holding midfielder, but is better known for his exploits on the wing for his club Marseille, who faced United on the road to the Champions League final.
