Bayern Munich wing ace Franck Ribery says he's aware of Barcelona's interest. Barca sports chief Txiki Begiristain was in Munich a fortnight ago for talks with intermediaries over Ribery.

And the Frenchman told Bild: "I know that Barca want me."

El Mundo Deportivo says Barca coach Pep Guardiola was keen on Ribery in the summer, along with his Bayern teammate Luca Toni.
