Ribery linked with Qatar move
Bayern München veteran Franck Ribery is being linked with a switch to Qatar.
Franck Ribery is considering joining Al Sadd Sports Club in Qatar when his contract with Bayern München expires this summer, Kicker reports.

Xavi Hernandez plays for the club, and - apparently - Ribery talked to the former Barcelona star about a possible transfer during Bayern's training camp in Qatar in January.
Ribery currently makes €7 million a year at Bayern, and the 35-year-old would earn just about the same salary in Qatar.
According to Kicker, Ribery is seriously considering the offer. The winger probably doesn't want to retire. Bayern have told the 35-year-old they will offer him a job when he ends his career. But Ribery's future task at the club isn't defined yet, and he would like to play for two or three more years.
Ribery has played for Bayern since 2007.
