£14 Million Bid For Ribery

 £14 Million Bid For Ribery

A £14 million bid has been lodged for French Winger Franck Ribery, unfortunately it's from Lyon.

Arsenal have been strongly linked with the player over the past few days with many sources claiming Arsenal would place a bid within the next 48 hours, well the bid has arrived but not from Arsenal, from OM's french rivals Lyon.

The player himself said earlier this week that he wanted to leave Marsielle, and the club he wanted to join knew it and it was just a case of agreeing a deal.

Maybe Lyon were the team he was talking about and not the Gunners, or maybe Lyon have just tried to jump to the front of the queue, one thing is for sure, the wheels are definately in motion.

Well as of tomorrow night he is cup tied. Uefa seem to have changed the rules again so even if a player plays in the uefa cup then he is cup tied for the cl. That wasnt the case last season but it appears to have gone back the way it was. Plus if lyon believe arsenal are about to sell reyes (likely) & will then bid for ribery they probably want to get it done now before arsenal get the cash to spend.

Thats a very plausable theory AG. However, Ribery seems to be set on which club he wants, so if it is Arsenal then Lyon are just wasting their time!!!

R7- Thats very true, but ribery (or his agent) seems to change his mind daily. If reyes is going then I desperately hope arsenal sign him because he & henry seem to have a great understanding & friendship which henry doesnt seem to have with most players. It does seem his mind is set on lyon though.

I think lyon was always favourties to sign him if he does go, but then who knows who was? And in the end if lyon are not the club he want's he can just dig his heels in until the club he does want come in, if they ever do. Think 14m for him is to much more in the region of 6m if a fairer price. A good world cup doesn't make a player and so many have been bought on tourny performences only to fail to shine consistently over a season. Rather keep the players we have then sell and sign new ones.
