Manchester United full-back Patrice Evra is trying to convince Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery to join him at Old Trafford.
The France international is sure his compatriot would make a huge impact at United and would be an ideal signing if Cristiano Ronaldo were to leave.
"Many say Cristiano will leave but only he knows the answer," Evra told The Sun. "It's clear a guy like Franck would be the ideal solution for United if Cristiano left."
"Of course I talk to Franck about it, I tell him you had better come here."
Ribery has been in scintillating form for under-performing Bundesliga side Bayern this year and is attracting plenty of interest from Europe's biggest clubs, including Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Just a few weeks ago United rubbished reports that the club had tabled a £62.5m bid for the 26-year-old forward.
Speaking to ESPNsoccernet at the time the alleged bid for Ribery was made by United Evra said: "I don't know where they are at in the discussions and if they exist, but it would be a pleasure to see him here. Since he is made for the club.
"He has everything to succeed at Manchester."
