Ribery staying with Marseille until end of season

Franck Ribery has revealed there are a number of Spanish and English clubs keen on his services, but has reiterated his desire to stay at Marseille until the end of the season.

Several sides including Real Madrid, Lyon, Arsenal and Manchester United, are being linked with the France attacking midfielder.

Speculation is rife he could leave OM in the January transfer window.

But the 23-year-old is intent on helping the Mediterranean club qualify for next season's Champions League, and has once again stressed he will make his mind up on his future in the summer.

'I will stay with Marseille until the end of the season,' he said. 'My aim is to have a good end to the season with everyone here so that the club plays in the Champions League next season.

'After that, we will see what happens. If we make the Champions League, I will have to ask myself some questions. Even if we don't make it, it will not be easy to leave Marseille.'

When asked about interest from other clubs, he added: 'For sure there has been some contact. Clubs have been interested in me since the World Cup.

'I really like two championships - the Spanish and the English. Clubs in these two championships are interested in me and my displays.'

If Real were to sign Ribery, he would be seen as an ideal replacement for David Beckham, whose future at the Bernabeu is up in the air.

Ribery is just delighted to be spoken about in the same breath as the former England captain.

He said: 'Beckham is a great player, a star, and I am obviously pleased when people compare Beckham to Ribery.'
