Franz Beckenbauer has conceded the French superstar can leave for €94 million, according to our pals at L’Equipe, who also reckon Bayern Munich turned down an €80 million offer from free-spending La Liga outfit Real Madrid for to lure Ribéry to the Bernabeu three weeks ago.
Uli Höeness and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern’s top officials, have refused to deny Beckenbauer’s claims, having previously insisted the playmaker would not leave the Allianz Arena at any price.
