Barcelona To Offer Bayern Munich Cash Plus Gudjohnsen And Hleb For Ribery

Gudjohnsen_468x402Far from paying the €80 million Bayern Munich want for Franck Ribery, Barcelona intend to lower the fee by offering Eidur Gudjohnsen and Aliaksandr Hleb in exchange.

According to Sport, Pep Guardiola is desperate to land Ribery, but understands that paying €80m is not an option. Instead, the Blaugrana will offer a smaller fee, plus Gudjohnsen and Hleb. Both players are said to be admired by new Bayern coach Louis van Gaal.

Apart from the footballing incentive, Barcelona also want to sign Ribery to prove that they can compete with Real Madrid on the transfer market, since Los Merengues have been openly chasing the player for some time.

Meanwhile, Bayern remain adamant in their stance that Ribery will not be leaving the Allianz Arena, and have stressed that they will wait until the end of the transfer window before making any decisions.
