Chelsea Launching A €65m Bid For Bayern Munich Star Franck Ribery


The Premier League side are readying a bid for the highly-rated offensive midfielder, who has been linked with football away from the Allianz Arena all summer.

Rumours linking Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery with a move away from the Allianz Arena have been persistent all summer, with the French international star’s saga set to run until the closure of the transfer window as France Football have hinted at a mammoth move to Chelsea.

Just hours after reports broke in the Spanish press linking the 26-year-old with a move to Real Madrid, the suggestion from the player’s homeland is that the Blues have made a €65 million bid to lure him to the Premier League.

France Football
believes that the decision to launch this offensive for the player has been initiated by Bayern’s talks with Los Blancos concerning Arjen Robben, who is on the verge of a move to the Bundesliga. Indeed, the suggestions in France echo those that have been made in Spain: it is “likely” negotiations over Ribery will begin once again between Real and the Bavarians.

This news will greatly frustrate Bayern president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who has been trying to dispel assertions that his prized asset could leave all summer. 

Furthermore, Ribery has only just overcome injury and is poised to make his first start of the season against Wolfsburg on Saturday evening, for what is already a key match for the thus-far winless Bavarian outfit.
