Barcelona assistant coach Tito Vilanova admits Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery would be very welcome at the Nou Camp. Vilanova declared: "Ribéry is extremely fast and can score goals. His profile and ability would fit very well at Barca.

"There are many matches during a season and Ribéry can play both on the right and the left, which would serve to give a break to Thierry Henry or Leo Messi."

Asked about Samuel Eto'o's future, Vilanova was cautious: "This season his behavior has been excellent, but to continue or not will depend on him and the club."
