Franck Ribery To Join Salernitana on Monday

Franck Ribery has reportedly agreed personal terms with Salernitana and will sign a one-year deal on Monday.

According to reports, the French star has shaken hands with the newly-promoted Serie A side on a one-year contract worth €1.5m.

The deal comes with an option that allows Ribery to extend his stay for one more season if Salernitana gain Serie A survival.

Ribery played the last two seasons at Fiorentina, where he scored five goals in 50 appearances. His contract at the Artemio Franchi had expired this past June, but Ribery wanted to remain in Serie A.

Hellas Verona had also made an attempt to sign the 38-year-old, but Salernitana’s offer convinced Ribery. According to the report, Turkish side Karagmuruk also made an offer to sign the Bayern Munich legend.

Ribery will arrive in town on Monday to sign his contract with Fabrizio Castori’s side.

The Granata lost their opening two Serie A games of the season against Bologna and Roma.
