Ribery: Every Big Club In Europe Wanted Me

Franck Ribery has revealed that he considered leaving Bayern Munich after receiving offers from a number of Europe's elite clubs.
"Of course I thought about a move," he told Kicker.

"In 2008 or 2009, every big club wanted me: Juventus, Inter, Milan, Barca, Real, Chelsea, Manchester...

"In hindsight, I have to thank Uli Hoeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge for speaking regularly to me back then. I've now been here for 10 years and have won everything. My family is doing well and I am happy.

"I have always said Bayern are my last club in Europe. I will play until my knee, my ankle or my back say 'stop'. If I remain free of injury, I might still have two or three more years at the top level."
