According to Gianluca Di Marzio and Sport Bild, among others, the 39-year-old will terminate his contract with Salernitana, which runs until 2023.
However, Ribéry will apparently remain at Salernitana until the end of the season, where he will act as a kind of ambassador.
The 39-year-old winger played 425 games for Bayern in all tournaments, racking up 124 goals and 182 assists.
