Ribery reveals interest in a move abroad
Marseille midfielder Franck Ribery has revealed he is interested in a big move to Europe, naming England and Spain as his preferred destinations.
The Marseille star has been given permission to leave the club in the summer and may yet choose to stay at the club if they qualify for the Champions League.
The France international has become one of Europe's hottest properties since his performances at the 2006 World Cup and he has been constantly linked with a move away from the Stade Vélodrome.
Talking to France Football, Ribery ruled out the possibilty of a move to rivals Lyon, but did make it clear that Europe's top clubs would interest him.
'It is true last summer Lyon were very interested in me, but now I am only attracted by abroad. If I would leave, it would only be for a foreign club,' he said.
'I know I am not very excited by a country like Germany. I prefer English and Spanish leagues.
'The clubs that make me dream? Manchester, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea and Milan.
'Money won't make me choose because there is money in any of those clubs. I just want to play, I don't want to change my club just to stay on the bench.'
Marseille are pushing for second-place in Ligue 1 as they chase a Champions League spot and Ribery has not ruled out extending his stay with his current club.
'The day I leave Marseille, I would like to leave with my head held high, serene,' Ribery added.
'My priority is to play Champions League football next season and why not with Marseille? I will do my best for l'OM to reach it.
'Then we will see what happens by the end of the season.'
