Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has signed a new five-year contract with the club, bringing an end to speculation that he would leave the German champions this summer.

Ribery’s future has been the subject of much speculation, with Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Barcelona all linked with a move for the French international.

But the winger, who helped the club reach the Champions League final – has committed his future to Bayern until at least 2015.

“We are very pleased that one of the best players in the world has agreed to a contract extension. This is also a sign of the great objectives of FC Bayern in the coming years,” Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said.

Ribery revealed he is delighted to remain at Bayern.

“I am very happy to have decided to stay with FC Bayern,” Ribery said. “My family and I are very happy to be staying in Munich. This club has become a big family for me.”

Ribery has scored seven goals in in an injury-interrupted season, but he missed Bayern’s Champions League final defeat to Inter on Saturday through suspension, after he was sent-off in the first leg of the semi-final victory over Lyon.
