Arsenal to bid £40m for Ribery

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger believes he is now close to -pulling off one of the transfer coups of the summer and -winning the race to sign the Bayern Munich winger.

Until the last couple of weeks Ribery, 26, was destined for one of EuropeÌs giants with Man United, Barcelona and Real Madrid all in the hunt.

But despite the huge interest and several offers of around £30m, Bayern stubbornly refused to sell for anything less than £40m.

And that suddenly left Arsenal in pole position, even though Wenger has long made it clear he cannot compete with his rivals when it comes to buying the biggest names in the game.

Yet an offer of £30m plus £10m-rated Danish hitman Nicklas Bendtner to make up the difference appears to have struck a chord with new Bayern coach Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman has made it clear he does not want unsettled players at the club and reckons that ArsenalÌs cash-and-player deal represents good business for the Bundesliga boys.

Manchester City are the only other club still monitoring developments but Ribery has told the big-spending Premier League outfit he wants Champions League football next term.

It is that, combined with the strong French connection at the Emirates, which is convincing Ribery his future lies with the north London club.

Wenger has been desperate to keep the negotiations under wraps to avoid alerting United or Barca.

  16. midou says:

    we all know that AW will never buy a DM especially when the figures mentioned r like 15mil. at 1 point rumors was that the board would back him 4 around 40 to 50mil. well knowing AW and the players he always fancy frank ribery is that kind. i just wanna say hope its true after all we r a massive club so really why not?

  21. el turko says:

    Ha ha, what an absolute load of nonsense, Ribery? Benzema? what the fuck are any of these dopey stories about? As if we’d pay 40 million for Ribery, he’s not worth it, we dont have it and even if we did Arsene wouldnt pay it.
    total shit.
    i still clicked on the link though.

  25. mark gooner says:

    My god. Was it worth the effort it took u to write that shit. The fans comments on this story say it all

  26. Peppers says:

    I heard the same from a pretty well connected matew of mine yesteday but also refused to beleive it. I say – probably bollocks but never say never.

  27. Josh says:

    FFS, do they just take acid, sit around, and dream up the most improbably transfers.

    My source, close to the Arsenal board, says every time we score this season, the crowd will be shower by diamonds. The thought is that if the fans sell them they can then buy the players for the club, and Wenger agreed to put them in the first team.

  28. jakobson says:

    As much as the idea is excting, everyone knows Arsenal ae unlikely to pay such a large sum. Tbh, FB doesn’t appeal to me as much as Alonso did last season. It’s so unlikely I would be chuffed if true, but massively unlikely. All I care is tht Adebayor goes as he is a disruptive character as was visable last season. NB wants to prove a point and E.Adebayor seems only interested in progressing his career as he stated in a recent interview. Chamakh may be amazing, but who knows, I have hopes pinned on NB and I think a lot of impatient supporters should give the guy a chance! The guy is young is young and keen to please so lets get behgind him! At least he tries!!

  29. jakobson says:

    Okay, having read it through, it’s clear i’ve had a few! However, the ideaa is simple. Sell EA25 and buy a gd dm and trust in NB, as I think AW will and he ha s been proven right more often than not

  30. Henry says:

    Complete and total rubbish…

  31. Jesus_Saves says:

  34. dale says:

    nonsense, total jibberish just to get hits..unfortunately it worked coz i clicked!!! DUH

  35. cescfiberglass says:

    bulllllllllllSHIITT!… everyone and i mean EVERYONE knows bendtner (unfortunately) is NOT going anywhere. Would rather see Ade go before. I’m not convinced yet on Bendtner, but he can only get better, and i KNOW Arsene will keep him…

  36. keeming says:

    chee bye, I think most of us clicked, not because we believed, but because we wanted to see what bullshit the article comes out with. Wow. not only 40m. but selling the player he recently quoted as saying will “scare any defence”.

    Try to think of a more coherent lie next, will ya?

  37. Jav says:

  49. Goon says:

    Arsenal are set to sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid with and audacious £90million + £28million rated Eboue!

  50. Gavlaa says:

    I think well sign benzema tht is strong link and I think strong French. Connections will get a good deal but bendtner is going nowere he scored 15 goals as a sub so yeah ribery= bullshit !

  51. LB says:

    The Benzema story looks more crdeible compared to this. 40m is a lot. I don’t think any footballer is worth that, neither does Wenger.

  52. Bethnahrein says:

    yea next up is messi i not mention Maradona:D

  53. Evo in Oz says:

    fair enough you have quoted it from the daily star, but even you would have been 100% sure not to trust such a source?

  54. stav says:

    I understand that we are also buying Pele, Best, Weah… Cygan and Dave Smith (Aldershot & Farnborough Sunday league Div 5)are also coming…oh and I turned down a filthy night with Beyonce & Marilyn Monroe…

  56. random roy says:

    Cocaines a hell of a drug!!!!!

  57. Gunner Man says:

    Why do we arsenal fan always think negative, arsenal is a big club, so linking with players like Rivery and Benzema should not be a problem. we can sign them, why not

  58. adski says:

    ha ha ha! listen to u lil pussys gettin all hot n bothered n cryin over a lil rumour… grow up ya fukkkin fairys lol

  59. Danish Gooner says:

    For one reason and one reason alone,Arsene Wenger.

  60. bob says:

    obviously needed a few hits and comments eh? it wasnt newsworthy in the star and ain’t newsworthy on your blog! deseration at its finest!

  61. bob says:

    and misspelling at its finest in my post, i meant desperation

  62. Rei X says:

    About Benzema it’s true..
    But not about Ribery.

  63. Gooner Chris says:

    What a load of shit.

    You don’t even make an effort to write your own article. It’s just a copy and paste job to gain more members on your forum.

    Shouldn’t be on NewsNow.

  64. sabret00the says:

    The move would unsettle Nasri, can’t see Wenger doing that on purpose. Thus this move would lead to us losing one or both in a season or two. Not very Wenger-like.

  65. Boris 9 says:

    Totally Bullshit , you sick FUCKS !!!!

  66. am says:

    Total rubbish.

    We got linked with Benzema yesterday, which was odd but even more odd was this one.

    Yeh and tommorow this website might say that Arsenal is in for Villa, aswell as Messi and Xavi.

  67. Simon says:

    Kind of unlikely, but you should never say never when it comes the Le Proffeseur.

  69. Kerry Klecic says:

    Your joking, right? Arsenal don’t even have that kind of money. Laugh.

  70. primoseto says:

    is it make sense for a club like arsenal to spend money until 4om pound?

  71. creptone madunda says:

    Do you mean what you are writing or you are trying to attract us to read your article…? Oho… Benzema,Ribery,what..what..confirm first so as you can post your article……………… O key !
