Bayern Munich have placed a world record transfer fee on his head but that may not stop Manchester United making a cheeky bid for French star Franck Ribery.
At the Audi Cup last night, where Bayern beat United on penalties, there were suggestions that the Red Devils were set to offer the German giants £35 million for Ribery.
And this even though Bayern have stated it would take more than the £80 million that Real Madrid paid United for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The belief is that United will wait a fortnight before making their move.
Real Madrid have made no secret of their interest in Ribery and indeed he has been quoted saying he would relish a move to the Bernabeu.
Chelsea will also be watching developments closely while Liverpool have also been linked with Ribery.
