According to a report from kicker, Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery is weighing a few options for where he will continue his career. Notably, Ribery is considering a move to Qatar where he would suit up for Al-Sadd Sport Club.

The immediate future of Franck Ribery does not lie in Munich, this has long been known. The 36-year-old will leave the record champion this summer to continue playing football. As far as the new club is concerned, there is a trend: Ribery is moving to Qatar. Among others, the Al-Sadd Sport Club, where the Spanish World and European Champion Xavi also works, is courting the Frenchman. From Australia, the Western Sydney Wanderers, where Markus Babbel works as a trainer, have also expressed interest in the dribbler.

As noted above and also covered here, Ribery also reportedly has a standing offer from the Western Sydney Wanderers in Australia. Despite his age, the 36-year-old winger has shown enough prowess this season to warrant playing a few more years in a league where he would be a regular starter.
