Franck Ribery set for Qatar move?
France and Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery will reportedly move to Qatar at the end of the season when his contract with the Bundesliga giants expires. The winger, 36, had been expected to hang up his boots at the end of this season, but it appears Ribery wants to move to the Middle East instead.
Ribery's fitness is still at an optimum level and German media outlet Sport Bild suggest that there has been interest from Qatari side Al-Sadd, with the club set to link up with Xavi at the club. It is understood that the Qatari outfit is willing to pay 400,000 euros a week to bring Ribery to the club.
Bayern Munich have been seeking a long-term replacement for Ribery for some time and the impressive recent form of Serge Gnabry offers plenty for the German side to smile about, but it is imperative that the Bavarian outfit find replacements for their ageing squad this summer.
Ribery has been one of the Munchen club's most important players for over a decade.
