Ribery's Situation Changed Yet Again

Mere days after unambigously stating that Ribery is not for sale Bayern came out and admitted that they might lose the French star who is a United target according to rumours.

The Bavarian club's own living god - nothing describes his position more appropriately in my opinion -, Franz Beckenbauer himself conceded that Ribery could change clubs in the summer.

"I see only one of two solutions: either we offer Ribery a contract extension for him to sign or we let him go.'

'Personally, I hope he stays and signs a new contract. I rate him, together with Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, as the best player in the world at the moment.

'If he were to leave, it would be the second huge loss for the Bundesliga after Diego`s move from Werder Bremen for Juventus. But if he wants to leave then it will be very hard for us to hang on to him.'

'So many so-called irreplaceable players have gone yet football has still moved on. Obviously it would be a shame. It is hard to imagine Bayern being better without Ribery."

Real Madrid are the favourites to land him but it's getting out of hand with them: surely Perez won't sign all of Ronaldo, Valencia, Kaka and Ribery even though Madrid are supposed to be the frontrunners for the signatures of all four aforementioned players...

surely? :P i wouldn't put it past them, but it wouldn't work. Ronaldo's success at United was down to the hard work and unselfishness of players like Carrick, Tevez, Rooney etc. He loses that if he goes to Madrid.
