"Happy" Ribery hints at new Bayern deal

Franck Ribery has hinted he could soon sign a new deal with Bayern Munich.

The France midfielder was one of the hottest properties of the summer with big-spending Real Madrid one of the clubs doing their utmost to prise him away from Bayern.

Ribery remained with the Bundesliga giants and has now revealed he could very well extend his contract which is set to expire in 2011.

"The club already knows what they want and I have on my side an idea of what could happen,'' he said. "In football things can sometimes happen really quickly. A simple meeting and everything could be decided. There have not yet been any meetings but that could happen really quickly.''

Ribery is still not 100% fit after a succession of leg injuries and is yet to make his first start of the season.

However, he came off the bench to score his side's third goal in their 5-1 drubbing of Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. And the 26-year-old insists he is loving life at the Allianz Arena.

He added: "I feel loved at Bayern. It makes me feel happy that important people at the heart of the club are showing their confidence in me. The reaction of the supporters at my return also made me happy. This gives me a lot of strength.''
