Bayern Munich general manager Uli Hoeness insists Franck Ribery is not for sale, even at €70million.

Reports earlier this week claimed Manchester United were lining up a €70million [£62million] bid for the French schemer.

United quickly rejected the speculation that they were preparing a mega big and now Bayern claim €70million would not be enough for them to cash-in on the classy attacker.

"For €70 million, we will not let Franck Ribery leave," Hoeness told Kicker.

The likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Chelsea have also been credited with an interest in the former Marseille man, but Hoeness insists they have not fielded any enquires.

"We have yet to receive concrete enquiries from any club regarding Franck Ribery," added Hoeness.

"We have not heard anything on this from the clubs he is linked with."

Manager hunt

Meanwhile, Hoeness believes the club will make a decision on who their new manager will be next week.

AZ Alkmaar coach Louis van Gaal is the favourite for the role to succeed Jurgen Klinsmann, but Hoeness has cast doubt on a move for the Dutchman by revealing they do not plan to pay any compensation for a new coach.

"I think there will be a decision coming at the start or in the course of next week," noted Hoeness.

"We have decided we do not want to pay compensation for anyone to become our new manager."

Bayern's Dutch midfielder Mark van Bommel has backed any move for van Gaal, believing his compatriot would be a success at the German giants.

"Louis van Gaal is a very good manager, he would go well with Bayern Munich," said van Bommel.
