Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has threatened to take legal action against FIFPro as Manchester United and Chelsea target Franck Ribery's plot to quit the German giants took another twist.
The game's global union for professional players revealed they intend to support the want-away France international's bid to engineer an exit from the Allianz Arena this summer, with a host of elite European suitors vying for the winger's services.
Real Madrid lead the chase for the £60million-rated 26-year-old andBayern are braced for Ribery to exploit a FIFA loophole as theydesperately seek to hold onto him.
'Everything has a limit and with the stance FIFPro has taken, they have gone overboard,' Rummenigge told Munich-based German daily TZ.
