Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has confirmed Franck Ribery is also heading for the exit door this summer.
Bayern legend Arjen Robben has already revealed he will leave the Allianz Arena at the end of the season to continue his career elsewhere, and Ribery is set to follow him.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness admitted after a recent victory over Werder Bremen that two stalwarts were approaching the end, and Salihamidzic has reiterated that stance.
Ribery has been with the Bavarians for the last 12 years, but will become a free agent at the end of the season. “The president talked about it [the possibility of leaving], and I think it will be like that. It’s a year of changes,” Salihamidzic said when quizzed about the Frenchman’s future.
Ribery has made 406 appearances for Bayern and Salihamidzic added: “I am pleased that Franck is still playing that well. He’s one of our key players.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
