The football world was in a state of shock last night when news erupted that Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery could be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu.
The transfer, which is expected to cost €30 million, was leaked by key sources at the Allianz Arena.
'Ribery is looking to leave the club as soon as possible', remarked one source.
'He has his heart set on joining Real Madrid, so I reckon that the deal will go through by the end of the week.'
Meanwhile, Arsenal fan and television presenter Piers Morgan caused controversy on Twitter when he told his followers that the Bayern winger was not worth the €30 million.
'Real Madrid must be mad to offer that price. Ribery has been utter crap this season.'
