Bayern Munich midfielder Franck Ribery is not planning on leaving Bayern Munich before his contract runs out, despite speculation that Manchester United are targeting the star.

Ribery had been linked with Manchester United after telling reporters he thought the Europa League was ‘rubbish’, and with Bayern Munich currently fighting for the last spot in the Champions League as the Bundesliga winds down, Ribery appeared all but gone from the German outfit.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are guaranteed a spot in next season's Champions League as the Barclays Premier League finishes. Patrice Evra, Ribery's French teammate, was also poised to encourage the star to make the move to Old Trafford.


But now Ribery has quashed rumours of heading to Manchester United, telling reporters that Champions League qualification has become irrelevant.

"It's very hard for a big player when you're not sure whether your team will qualify for the Champions League," Ribery told TZ.

"I went through this before in my first season at Bayern. We played UEFA Cup football then and it wasn't much fun."

"I've already decided for myself that I want to stay.”

"My contract with Bayern runs for four more years and I'm not even thinking about a transfer.

“I'm feeling very well at the club and I don't want to leave Bayern."
