Arsenal To Win Ribery Race?

Arsenal To Win Ribery Race?

World Cup finalist, Franck Ribery, today dropped a massive hint that he could well be on his way to Arsenal.

Speaking about his future prior to the final Ribery admitts there would be nothing better than than working for an English club with a French manager.

Ring any bells?

The winger said,

'I would love to have a career like Zizou, it has taken him to the biggest clubs in the world.'

'I have only just started my career. It's true I've been with five clubs in five years. I was born in Boulogne, played for Ales, Brest, Metz then Galatasaray in Turkey and now I am with Olympique Marseille. I went to a foreign club too early and it was not the right environment for me.'

'I'd love to play for a big club in England - and nothing would be more ideal than to be with a French coach.'

'But this is not the time to speak about my future. I have the World Cup and that is bigger than anything in my life right now.'

The rumours are in full swing this morning.

Did Ribery actually say this or is it just more made up rubbish from the press?? If someone actually saw him say it then fine maybe there is something to it but all I have ever actually heard him say is how much he wants to join lyon!!

great signing, didn't expect it, but with all the supposed signings in saviola, yaya toure or mascherano, salcido, nuri sahin or gago. We are building a massive squad that can challenge on all fronts, and teams domestically and in europe should be biting there finger nails. Seriously...

I want him to come but Manchester United want him and he has been linked with Lyon too, If he comes he will be a huge player though. Theres a big if though.
