Sir Alex wants this player by all accounts and the speculation is apparently making this star consider his options.
Danny van Buyten says Bayern Munich teammate Franck Ribery is weighing up interest from Manchester United and Barcelona.
Van Buyten told L’Equipe: “He is asking himself questions.
“Which human being would not if clubs such as Barcelona or Manchester [United] were interested in him?
“As far as I’m concerned, I don’t have advice to give him, but we do speak about it. What I do is just remind him that at Munich, he’s the king.” (tribalfootball.com)
Well if indeed Ribery is weighing up his options he may well see that United is the place to be. Obviously Sir Alex will be reeling after the Liverpool defeat but he knows, as do the club’s fans, that they are still the best club in the world at the moment and it wouldn’t surprise me if Ribery left Munich in the summer and then it would just be about whether the Old Trafford boss feels the need to bring in a big name signing? Would the fans like the idea of the French playmaker joining the club or is he not needed?
