Bayern Munich want Real Madrid's Dutchmen in Ribery swap

Bayern Munich coach Louis van Gaal wants Real Madrid players in part-exchange for Franck Ribery. El Mundo Deportivo says Van Gaal is ready to play hard-ball over negotiations with Real for the sale of Ribery.

Real midfielders Wesley Sneijder and Rafael van der Vaart are both wanted by Van Gaal, who also would seriously consider fellow Dutchmen Arjen Robben and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

The big stumbling block for Bayern will be wages and they may demand Real cover a percentage of Van der Vaart and Sneijder's salaries before agreeing to any Ribery sale.
