Andre Ayew Darren Fletcher of Manchester United challenges Andre Ayew of Marseille during the UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg match between Marseille and Manchester United at the Stade Velodrome on February 23, 2011 in Marseille, France.While some players feel transfer rumours are an irritating distraction which can damage their on-field performances, Andre Ayew, the Marseille winger/striker has told of how “fantastic” it is to see his name linked to big clubs in newspapers. Manchester United and Barcelona – the two 2011 Champions League finalists have been said to be following the 21 year-old, and the Ghanian did not attempt to hide his amazement:

“It is fantastic to hear these stories, even if it’s just through newspapers.”

“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.”

After an impressive World Cup for Ghana, Ayew has had a very good season with his club, Marseille, scoring 10 goals and assisting 2 in the French Ligue 1. He was unable to grab a goal against Manchester United however, when he played against them for Marseille in this years Champions League, with a Javier Hernandez double sealing a United victory in that tie.

Despite his understandable enthusiasm to being linked with two of the best teams in Europe, he was obliged to emphasise his love of playing where he is now, at Marseille, describing it as a “dream”:

“Do not forget last season, I was playing at Arles Avignon in the second division.”

“The World Cup has made me realise my potential. It is a dream to play for Marseille and I love every minute of it.”

Manchester United are not said to have made a move for the player, but Barcelona are reported to be preparing an £8 million bid for the versatile winger. Below you can see some highlights of Andre Ayew:
