Agent: Ribery dreaming of Barcelona

Bayern Munich playmakerFranck Ribery would jump at the chance to

play alongside Lionel Messi at Barcelona, according to his agent.

Ribery’s representative, Alain Migliaccio, has said that the

France forward has not closed the door on a move anywhere and would

welcome renewed interest.

While reports suggest that Real Madrid remain favourites to

land Ribery, the chance to play alongside Messi at the Nou Camp

could prove to be irresistible.

“He would like to play alongside Messi, that would be

phenomenal,” Migliaccio told RAC-1.

Barca ended their interest last season when Bayern Munich

insisted that Ribery was not for sale, but with presidential

elections at the Spanish giants in the summer, one or more

candidates could look to make a move to influence voters.

Migliaccio admits that a number of clubs had let their

interest be known and that Ribery was not ruling out joining anyone

at this stage.

“There are no doors closed, not that of Real Madrid, or

Barca, or Manchester United,” he added.

“At the beginning of March we will make a decision and then

see.”
