Agent cools Ribery Prem talk

Franck Ribery's agent has revealed that Barcelona is the Bayern Munich star's most likely next destination. The France international was heavily linked with moves to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea during the summer transfer window before ultimately staying at the Allianz Arena. However, agent Alain Migliaccio has revealed that the possibility of linking up with current World and European player of the year Lionel Messi at Barcelona would be an appealing prospect for Ribery. Bayern have already warned the 26-year-old winger that he will be sold this summer if he fails to agree a new contract to remain in the Bundesliga. "He would like to play alongside Messi, that would be phenomenal," said Migliaccio. "There are no doors closed, not that of Real Madrid or Barca or Manchester United. "At the beginning of March we will make a decision and then see."
