Ribery set to snub England

24 Mar 2010 - 12:20:42

Bayern Munich ace Franck Ribery is highly unlikely to head to England next season if he decides to quit the German giants at all.

The 26-year-old France forward is expected to opt to move on from Bayern at the end of the season, but the hopes of Manchester United or Chelsea agreeing a deal have taken a major blow.

Ribery told Bild: "If I decide not to accept Bayern's offer of an extension, then I'll certainly be going to Spain.

"I can assure you there has been no decision yet. I myself am brooding about this the most.

"I would be lying if I said I wasn't leaning in one direction, but I have to take a lot of factors into consideration - not only what is good for me, but also for my wife and children.

"Real and Barcelona are, perhaps alongside Manchester United and Chelsea, above all other clubs. I am also only human.

"If you have an offer from such a club you should be allowed to consider it. It's where the world's best players play.

"Barcelona have built a team for the term. Everyone in the world knows how they play. Meanwhile, Real Madrid have invested in superstars, but something is missing.

"Right now, I am pondering what is the most attractive option. Madrid have prestige despite failing in the last 16 of the Champions League for the last six seasons."
