Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery has vowed to make a definitive decision on his future in the coming weeks.
The France international was the subject of almost daily speculation during the summer, with Real Madrid interested in his services and clubs in the Premier League also keen.
Winger Ribery is out of contract at the end of next season but Bayern are not prepared to take the risk of allowing him to leave for nothing and are eager to reach an agreement over an extended contract.
The Bundesliga giants have insisted that retaining Ribery is their 'top priority', but coach Louis van Gaal knows there is no guarantee he will remain, although the player claims he is 'very happy' at the Allianz Arena.
Ribery helped his side reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, progressing on away goals after a 4-4 aggregate draw with Fiorentina.
And he has vowed to make his intentions known in the next month as he is eager to go to the World Cup this summer without further speculation blighting his tournament.
"At the end of March or the start of April I should be able to decide," Ribery said.
"I want to go to the World Cup with a free head, because it is a very important tournament for me.
"What is important is that we are still able to win all competitions that we are in.
"I am very happy to be here at Bayern Munich."
