Franck Ribery


Recommended Posts

Anyone got a spare £70m?




Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery is refusing to commit himself to the club beyond the end of this season.


The France international has a deal until 2011 but could be a transfer target for many clubs next summer, after recently admitting he did not know whether he would complete his contracted stay.


"There are lots of clubs in Europe who I dream of (playing for)," Ribery told Munich's Tz newspaper.


"Nobody knows what will happen next season. It is far too early to talk about it.


"At the moment, I am not even considering a transfer.


I feel very happy in Munich - the people love me, and I love the fans.


"There is a great atmosphere in the team, and everything is fantastic."


Despite suggestions of interest from Real Madrid, Bayern's general manager Uli Hoeness recently said the 25-year-old is not for sale at any price.


But Bayern president Franz Beckenbauer knows it may be hard to keep hold of Ribery if a serious offer did arrive.


"Clubs cannot hold on to players against their will," he told Premiere television.


"In the end, the player always wins if there is a battle - so if he really wants to move to Real Madrid, then why not?


"Bayern will do everything to keep him. But he does only have a contract until 2011 - and could move before then."
