First Every Player Was For Sale Now No Players Are For Sale:

First David Villa was taken off the market by Valencia, now it is Ribery being taken off the market by Bayern:

Franz Beckenbauer:

''Franck Ribery is irreplaceable,'' he told L'Equipe. ''Real Madrid know our position: he is not for sale. That Franck wants to go to Real is not a surprise. It's a fascinating club and attractive on a financial level.

''But Bayern are not a bad club either. At our club the doors are solid and very resistant and we're not going to push up the bidding.

''Ribery figures among the best players of the world. And when you have a player of this quality among the squad you don't separate.

''We want to build around this player who (Bayern coach) Louis van Gaal absolutely wants under his command.'' (Source)
