Ribery would choose Spain over Chelsea

French winger Franck Ribery has rubbished rumours of a summer move to Chelsea claiming that only a transfer to La Liga could tempt him to leave Bayern Munich.

The 26-year-old’s current deal with the Bundesliga club runs out in 2011 and it appears that he has already set his sights on a move to Spain.

‘It is still a very difficult decision which I have to make – my future and my career are at stake,’ Ribery told reporters. ‘But no decision has been made yet. I am the one poring over things the most at the moment. I would have to lie if I said that there is no tendency.’

‘Although Chelsea is obviously a big club, if I were to decide against Bayern, then I would certainly go to Spain,’ he added.

The news will be a blow for Blues fans with Ribery identified as one of the players who could provide a creative cutting edge to Carlo Ancelotti’s team next season.
