Bayern slap 150 million euro price tag on Ribery

Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness has slapped a 150 million euro price tag on midfielder Franck Ribery.

The France international was a reported target for AC Milan, who were thought to see him as a possible replacement for Kaka before his proposed move to Manchester City fell through last night.

Hoeness, though, values the former Marseille man higher than the Brazilian.

“If Kaka is meant to be worth 120 million, then Franck Ribery is worth 150 million,” Hoeness told Eurosport television. “We would only perhaps start to consider selling him at a sum like this.”

Ribery, 25, has a contract running to 2011 but recently said he would enjoy playing for other European clubs.

“Bayern are obviously one of the biggest and best clubs in the world,” he said late last year. “Obviously there are other clubs that would be a dream: Real Madrid and Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United.”

“I certainly love Real Madrid because of the great tradition but I feel happy here at Bayern. We will have to wait and see what the future holds.”
