France international Franck Ribery has admitted that he is growing tired of all the speculation about his future. Hardly a week goes by without the player being linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena and all the rumours are starting to annoy him. He has once again tried to put an end to all the exit talk by telling L'Equipe: "Everyone keeps asking me about my future, they only want to talk about when I will leave. "But it is useless because I don't want to talk about it anymore. I am fed up. "Staying or leaving? I don't reply to that question anymore. I am enjoying life at Bayern and I feel fine here." Meanwhile, Bayern's general manager, Uli Hoeness, thinks Ribery will see out his contract with the club, saying: "I don't think he wants to leave. He has much to look forward to here. "I know some people would like to take him for a lot of money. We are aware that we could be in for a battle. I am convinced two or three clubs will bid in the summer. "But we will do our best to keep him because he is a great player and an amazing man. He has been our best buy in the last 20 years. "However, would we have the strength and financial resources to keep him if an attractive club comes along? We will have to wait and see."
