Bayern Munich are considering putting a fine system in place in the wake of Franck Ribery's declaration that he wants to join Real Madrid.

The playmaker is a known target of Real but Bayern have consistently stressed that they will not part company with their prize asset.

Earlier this week, France international Ribery stated his interest in securing a move to the Primera Division giants.

And now Bayern's new director of sport, Christian Nerlinger, has announced that the club could bring in a fine system in order to avoid a repeat of Ribery's declaration.

Debate

"The players need to know the borders, so they don't exceed them again," said Nerlinger.

The tougher stance is the brainchild of manager Louis van Gaal, a notoriously tough disciplinarian, added Nerlinger.

"We unconditionally support him in this," he continued.

"We have told Franck clearly that we are building a team around him and a sale is not an issue for debate.

"The topic will soon take care of itself. Franck will stay with Bayern Munich."
