Barcelona have reportedly reached an agreement with Bayern Munich to sign French international Franck Ribery at the end of the season. The 26-year-old former Marseille man has been a long-time target of the la Liga leaders, with both Manchester United and Real Madrid also strongly linked with the midfielder. He revealed on Thursday that he would leave the Allianz Arena in the summer should Bayern fail to qualify for the Champions League, while his club captain, Mark van Bommel, has also been quoted as saying Ribery would be keen on a switch to Catalonia. And newspaper El Mundo Deportivo are now claiming that representatives of the two clubs have met with Ribery's agent, Alain Migliaccio, to agree a £30 million cash-plus-player deal, believed to be either Aleksandr Hleb or Eidur Gudjohnsen.
