Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery has been taking his time to figure out what he wants to do next and new report indicates that the 36-year-old legend could be joining Al-Nassr in the Saudi Pro League.

Per kicker, Ribery is set to be offered a two-year contract from the Saudi Arabian club:

The future of Franck Ribery could be in Saudi Arabia. The club Al-Nassr Riad is wooing the Frenchman with a two-year contract. Ribery’s contract with Bayern Munich was not renewed at the end of last season after twelve years. Since then, the 36-year-old, who aspires to play for another two years, is looking for a club.

Ribery showed some flashes of what he can offer in the second half of last season for Bayern Munich. A wily veteran, who is still in great shape, Ribery could provide an immediate impact to Al-Nassr as he seeks to extend his career for just a little while longer.
