Ribery hopes to stay at Bayern

Bayern Munich‘s Franck Ribery, whose current deal expires at the end of the season, would like to remain at the Allianz Arena, according to Sport Bild.

Despite turning 35 in a few days, the winger is showing no sign of deterioration. He was a key figure for the Bavarians both in the 6-0 Dortmund annihilation last weekend where he was on the score sheet, and in the narrow win at Sevilla in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals where his shot was deflected into the net by Sevilla’s Jesus Navas.

He has spent 11 years in Munich and made 380 appearances across all competitions for Bayern, and scored 117 goals. With this club he has won seven Bundesliga titles (with number eight on the way), five DFB-Pokal trophies, four German Supercups, and the UEFA Champions League together with the UEFA Supercup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2013.

Given the level he’s performing on at the moment, it’s very likely he will be offered a new deal. But in case it doesn’t happen, there are lucrative offers from elsewhere, including China and Qatar.
