Bayern Munich dismiss reported €70 million Ribéry bid

Latest update : 2009-05-07

Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness has dismissed reports Manchester United could buy French midfielder Franck Ribéry for a record 70 million euros, saying the German club would not allow its star player to leave for that sum.

AFP - Bayern Munich team manager Uli Hoeness insisted Thursday the defending Bundesliga champions will not sell midfielder Franck Ribery to Manchester United for 70 million euros (96.8 million US dollars).
  
"For 70 million euros, we would not allow Franck Ribery to leave," Hoeness told German magazine Kicker after reports this week the English giants were set to make a huge bid for the Frenchman.
  
Hoeness insists Bayern have received no offers from European giants Manchester United, Real Madrid or Chelsea for Ribery, who is under contract until 2011.
