Bayern Munich have indicated they will not sell French international and midfield star Franck Ribery for any price amid interest from top English and Spanish clubs, German media reports said Saturday.

“No matter how many millions are on the table, at the end of the day it is Bayern who decide and we do not want to sell Franck,” chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told newspaper tz.

General manager Uli Hoeness told Bild that Bayern would be hanging onto their man.

“When I hear there is a 125 million euro offer for Brazil’s Kaka then I say that Franck’s market value is at least 100 million euros,” Hoeness said.

“But I do not want to set a price as we want to keep Franck,” he added.

British media reports say Chelsea would shell out 50 million euros for the former Marseille star amid earlier reports Manchester United would go up to 70 million.

Real Madrid and European champions Barcelona have also been reported as showing serious interest in Ribery, whose Bayern deal runs to 2011.
