Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez is reportedly preparing an ambitious bid for Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery

The French international, widely tipped to star for Les Bleus at EURO 2008 next month, has catapulted himself to superstardom since his arrival in Bavaria last summer.

The 25-year-old journeyman is now recognised as one of the most dangerous wingers in the game, alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

His performances for Bayern have alerted some of the biggest clubs in Europe, and reports from Germany claim Liverpool will offer ₤20 million for the former Marseille man.

Benitez is keen to strengthen his attacking options over the summer, and has been monitoring a number of wide players, including La Liga stars Maxi Rodriguez and Albert Riera.

Ribery’s ability to play right across the pitch will no doubt attract the former Valencia boss, as will the Frenchman’s supreme understanding with Bayern hitman Luca Toni.

Benitez is planning to build a team around star striker Fernando Torres, and Ribery could prove a stunning addition alongside Dutch youngster Ryan Babel and Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard in the Reds’ 4-2-3-1 formation.

However, as Bayern paid around ₤17 million for the former Marseille man only a year ago, Rafa and co may have to up their bid if they wish to prise one of Europe’s most exciting talents away from the Allianz Arena.

To get Ribery they would have to pay at least 30, he has had an awesome season and he is now about to play in the CL, with one of the strongest squads

bayern munich is one of the biggest club in europe. i mean hello? they got a better squad than liverpool in my opinion. however, liverpool has better individual players in torres and gerrad. but, toni, klose, this 2 is a class combination. i doubt bayern would let him go for 20 mil.

Ribery cost Bayern 17million pounds, so I don't think he's going anywhere for 20million pounds. Maybe 25 to 30million pounds, but not for less and i don't think he'll leave after his first season.

They have the chance to do well in the Champions League next season, so I think this story is very speculative.

Please remember to add the source of the article if you are copying and pasting
from another site/forum....;)



BTW, Ribery would never go to Scouseland! Of all the teams in England, I think
Arsenal would be the best bet for him.....but Wenger doesn't like spending
money! :p
