French winger Franck Ribery says he wants to finish his career at Bayern Munich.

The 28-year-old is enduring his best run of form for the German club after falling out with previous coach Louis Van Gaal.

Interest from Chelsea and Manchester United had sparked talk that Ribery could leave the club in the near future, but the former Marseille man says he is hoping to stay put.

"This is perfect for me here. I can picture myself staying at Bayern forever" he said.

"If my body allows it I will be 35 and still playing here.

"I am the old Ribery again," he added.

"Van Gaal constantly told me what to do but I know how I should move.

"Heynckes explains to me how I can become better but without issuing orders.

"We laugh and work. I hope he stays here for a long time."

Chelsea and United were among a number of club following the winger during the summer as they looked to bolster their squads ahead of the Premier League title race.

Chelsea eventually opted with signing Juan Mata, while United brought in Ashley Young from Aston Villa.
