Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery wants Bundesliga transfer return aged 37 as he nears end of Fiorentina deal
18th March 2021

BAYERN MUNICH legend Franck Ribery reportedly wants a return to the Bundesliga.

The 37-year-old Frenchman is coming to the end of his deal with Serie A side Fiorentina and looking for a new club to continue with next season.

And, according to BILD, Ribery is now eyeing a sensational return to Germany two years after leaving Bayern.

At the end of his stint with the German champions in 2019, the winger had been linked with a move to Eintracht Frankfurt.

However, the length of the deal proved a stumbling block as Ribery decided instead to go to Italy.

When asked at the time about whether he considered the move to Frankfurt, he said: "I heard about that, yes. But I think they only wanted to give me a one-year contract."

Now Ribery would like a second spell in the Bundesliga, but it is understood that Eintracht are no longer interested in him.

This is because they believe he is too injury prone and his wages are too expensive.

And Frankfurt also already have a winger coming in at the end of the campaign in Union Berlin's Christopher Lenz.

Ribery has managed to play 39 times in two seasons for Fiorentina, scoring four goals and assisting another nine.

During his time with Bayern between 2007 and 2019, the French star won nine league titles.

He also lifted the Champions League trophy in 2013 under Jupp Heynckes.
