Hoeness: Ribery is staying

15 July 2009 07:00
Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness has warned potential suitors that not even a bid of 70million euros will persuade them to sell Franck Ribery. Ribery's future has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the summer with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United and Chelsea all rumoured to be interested in the France star. Bayern have sent out mixed messages about his futures in recent weeks, but Hoeness has now attempted to draw a line under the whole saga after claiming the winger will definitely be staying at the Allianz Arena. "He will certainly stay," he claimed. "We are not prepared to talk, not even for 70million euros or more."
