LONDON - Spanish football giant Real Madrid has floated a mighty bid of 70 million pounds for sign Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery.
Ribery is the primary target of several EPL teams like Manchester United and Chelsea, even Barcelona had articulated desire to bag the French footballer.
“We’re completely relaxed and proud to have one of the three greatest players in the world who’s attracting so much interest in the transfer market. We’re approaching it calmly because we’re the ones who have the power to make the decision,” The Sun quoted Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, as saying.
Real Madrid is determined to add Ribery to the 62 million pound capture of Kaka from AC Milan and the impending 80 million pound arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.
Real had secured a 70 million pound loan from Spanish bank Caja Madrid on Tuesday for this purpose. (ANI)
