Chelsea have been told it will cost £65 million to land Bayern Munich wing ace Franck Ribery.

Chelsea have been told it will cost £65 million to land Bayern Munich wing ace Franck Ribery.

The Times says the France winger has emerged as the club’s primary transfer target after Kaká’s £56 million move to Real Madrid this week. Chelsea have not made an official bid for Ribéry, but informal discussions have led to Bayern quoting a world-record figure.

The German club believe they are in a strong position because Real are also chasing Ribéry’s signature.

Sergio Agüero, the Atlético Madrid striker, and David Villa, the Valencia forward, are also on Chelsea’s radar in the event that they fail to lure Ribéry.
