Ribery deal almost done?

ribery barcelonaThe European tug-of-war surrounding the transfer of French winger Franck Ribery has been battle between the continent’s hot shots, with clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona topping the list of potential suitors.

According to a report published by El Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have struck a deal with the player’s agent and the only matter left is the consent of Bayern Munich’s officials. Representatives of the Catalan outfit were at a top ‘secret meeting’ with Ribery’s agent Alain Migliaccio in Ibiza, an exotic island off the coast of Spain where Migilaccio resides.

The report suggests that Barcelona offered Bayern €25 million for Ribery, plus the option of either Eidur Gudjohnsen or Aliaksandr Hleb, each of whom are rated at around €8 million. Both players have not featured regularly for Barca this season and are likely to consider a switch in search for more playing time.

These reports are yet to be confirmed or denied by either club.
