FC Bayern will not bring Franck Ribery back to Munich. That said, CEO Oliver Kahn at a press conference in the Allianz Arena.
“We’re not thinking about signing Franck Ribery,” Kahn told media representatives on Tuesday, including those SPOX and Goal counted.
The CEO put a stop to rumors that have been circulating for days. Most recently, Ribery had kept fit together with Jerome Boateng on Säbener Strasse. Both are currently looking for a club for the new season.
Ribery, who last played for ACF Fiorentina in Serie A for two years, had previously ended his great career at Bayern (2007 to 2019).
Lothar Matthäus also recently advised Bayern to sign Ribery in his Sky column if no other fourth winger behind Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman joined Julian Nagelsmann’s team until the transfer window was closed.
FC Bayern: No comment on Sabitzer
Furthermore, Kahn did not want to comment on the rumors of a possible commitment by Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig. “There are always many names traded, I don’t want to comment on that today,” said Kahn.
Previously had picture reports that the board of directors of FC Bayern already has a Sabitzer transfer package to vote on. However, it is still a prerequisite that another player has to be sold beforehand. One name that is mentioned again and again in this context is Corentin Tolisso, who has just recovered from a corona infection and whose contract expires at the end of the season.
