Ribery denies Bayern exit rumours

Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery has dismissed rumours linking him with a move away from Germany, saying he is happy to stay at the club for the remainder of his contract.

The French international is contracted to the 21-time German champions until June 2011, but has been linked with a a move to a string of high-profile clubs, including Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Bayern's valuation of Ribery is currently a staggering £140 million, a sum Manchester City could feasibly afford in light of their recent pursuit of AC Milan playmaker Kaka.

However, the Frenchman has expressed his desire to stay at the Bundesliga outfit for the foreseeable future, despite recently admitting in an interview that playing for Real Madrid would be "a dream come true."

"I have a contract and intend on seeing it through," he told Sport Bild. "Whether it is Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea or Manchester City, I have never said I want to go anywhere.

"It [a new contract with Bayern] depends completely on the discussions, which my adviser and the club will conduct. So far there has been no signal from Bayern."
