Can Arsenal, minus Emmanuel Abedayor, get their pre-season preparations on track in the Emirates Cup? They face Atletico Madrid in an intriguing encounter on Saturday.

Franck Ribery has stated that he will not let the transfer speculation surrounding him affect the way he plays.

The Bayern Munich winger watched his side beat Manchester United on penalties to claim the Audi Cup amid reports of a £35 million offer from United.

“People talk a lot about my future, but personally I don’t want to discuss it,” Ribery told L’Equipe.

“Some people are under big pressure, and my future is big trouble for them. It is not troublesome for me though. I am fine.”

And the French international said he appreciates Bayern’s determination to hold onto him.

He added: “The Bayern officials don’t want me to leave. They are attached to me. They love me.

“I appreciated the fact that they recently defended me after criticism from Mr [Franz] Beckenbauer against me.

“If I ever leave Bayern, I would like to leave on good terms with the club.

“I have always acted like a professional, both on and off the pitch, and I have not changed. I remain the same.”
