Marseille have confirmed Fabien Barthez will leave the club at the end of the season.
The former Manchester United ace has decided to move on from Stade Velodrome for personal reasons.
Barthez's future at Marseille has been the subject of intense speculation for the last few months with his current contract expiring in the summer.
Marseille chairman Pape Diouf has now revealed Barthez will not sign a new deal and will leave the club after the last game of the season against Bordeaux this weekend.
"Fabien will leave at the end of the season. He confirmed to us he was leaving for personal reasons, which have nothing to do with money, the sport or relationships with others at the club," Diouf told L'Equipe.
"He didn't make us any financial proposition, and we didn't make any too.
"Either we will be in Champions League or not, that won't change anything to his decision. He has to go, that's all.
"We were surprised at the beginning, but we all respect his decision.
"It is very moving for all of us, as he represents so much for the club."
Diouf also revealed Cedric Carasso will replace Barthez as the club's new number one next season.
Meanwhile, Renato Civelli is set to stay Marseille next term after impressing on loan.
Civelli joined the French giants last summer on a season-long loan from Banfield and he has done enough to win a permanent move to Marseille.
Marseille are ready to take up the option to sign him by offering Civelli a three-year deal.
