Manchester United have been linked with Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery over the past few weeks, with the idea that Cristiano Ronaldo may be ready to move on in the summer.
Wayne Rooney has already supported the move and Patrice Evra has joined him today.
“Franck has everything required to impose himself at Manchester,” said Evra. “I have no idea about the advancement of the discussions, or even if they exist, but seeing him here would be a real pleasure. He is made for this club.”
However, Bayern Munich insist he is not for sale, with general manager, Uli Hoeness, claiming today nobody has even been in touch with the player concerning a transfer for the player.
“For €70 million, we will not let Franck Ribery leave,” Hoeness said. “We have yet to receive concrete enquiries from any club regarding Franck Ribery. We have not heard anything on this from the clubs he is linked with.”
