Franck Ribery’s agent Bruno Heiderscheid has confirmed that Real Madrid have been in touch to discuss a possible move to Spain for the French international.
A number of leading European clubs have expressed an interest in Ribery following his impressive displays for France at last summer’s World Cup finals.
Real, who see the winger as a replacement for David Beckham, have contacted Heiderscheid to confirm their interest in the player.
“The Real Madrid contact was to say they are still attracted by Franck,” Heiderscheid said. “As far as I know they have not contacted l’OM so far.
“Franck wants to continue playing with Marseille, that is the priority. If there has to be a thinking about his future, it will not be before May.”
Lyon are still interested in the 23-year-old, but administrative director Marino Faccioli doubts whether Marseile would sell to a fellow French club.
Faccioli said: “We are still attracted by the good players, we won’t change our views on that.
“The problem is l’OM has claimed Ribery will never join Lyon. So since last summer, we remain quiet on that case.”
