Marseille manager has revealed that Kevin Strootman will be sold this summer after the French giants fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.

In his recent interview monitored by popular media outlet Goal, Netherlands international Strootman said that senior Marseille officials want to get rid of him this summer.

Kevin Strootman has previously been linked with a move to the Premier League especially Manchester United.

Arsenal have also been touted as a possible transfer destination for him in the past but his injury woes prevented the possibility of any move until last summer when he left Italian Serie A giants AS Roma to sign for Marseille.

The 29-year-old earns €4.5m on a yearly basis at the Stade Velodrome following his move from Roma for £23m.

In his first season at Marseille, the Dutch midfielder scored just once and provided five assists in 34 appearances in all competitions.

He scored one goal and weighed in with five assists in 28 French Ligue 1 games but it was not enough for Marseille who missed out on Champions League football.

Rudi Garcia and his boys finished the season in the fifth position and they will campaign in the Europa League next season.

Only the top three French Ligue 1 teams (champions PSG, Lille and Lyon) qualified for the Champions League ahead of next season.
