Sevilla are believed to have made an offer of €7m for Romaric as they view him as the ideal replacement for Barcelona-bound Seydou Keita and the news that the deal has been called off has not go down well.

"Three years at Le Mans is enough! I have made my decision, I will leave," Romaric stated. "The president has closed the door to Sevilla, it is his problem - in my mind I have already left.

"On July 9 I will resume training and it will be with Sevilla - they have already given me the pre-season schedule and I will follow it.

"Le Mans, it is over - I am upset because I have always been fair and respected them.

"Maybe they will prevent me from going to Sevilla - but I need another challenge and it will be elsewhere, not in Le Mans - it is very clear I won’t be back."
