Ribery

Bayern Munich expect to complete the signing of Marseille star Franck Ribery on Thursday.

The clubs are believed to have agreed a €25million (£17million) deal for the France international, which would make Ribery the most expensive player in Bayern's history.

"We just have a few details to settle, but the deal should be made on Wednesday," Marseille chairman Pape Diouf told L'Equipe.

"Ribery will leave for Munich on Thursday to have his medical and sign the contract. Bayern have always acted in a perfectly fair way since they declared their interest.

"When the player agreed to go to Bayern and our financial conditions were accepted, it was out of the question to imagine him going to any other club."

Ribery is expected to agree a four-year deal.

Diouf also confirmed that the money earned from the deal should allow Marseille to complete a deal for France striker Djibril Cisse.

"At the weekend or early next week, we will negotiate with Liverpool to try to keep Djibril Cisse."

Barcelona midfielder Ludovic Giuly recently hinted to a French radio station that he was eager to replace Ribery at Marseille, but Diouf claims nothing has yet been agreed.

"It is a just a vague appeal from the Barcelona player so far. We have to see what the conditions of the deal would be.

"But I have to be clear: we won't overpay anyone."

Now that's a surprise as I was sure he'd move to Arsenal. I'd prefer him to move to Bayern ahead of Arsenal of course

Arsenal offered €15million for Ribery thats why the deal don't come thru

unlike bayern who's willing to pay €25million for the frenchman. He'll be the prfect attacking midfielder that bayern is sort of lacking.

Bayern is spending big time for next season & doing some serious team reconstructing with sixth sigining so far including the latest of luca-toni & ribery. There are also talk about bringing in Miroslav Klose. I just love a club with loads of money bag who's willing to rebuild completely & more likely to win a trophy
