Franck Ribery’s stay in Italy could be extended for an extra year following reports that the ex-France winger is considering a move to newly promoted Serie A side, Salernitana.
The report comes from transfer market journalist, Nicolo Schira who claims that the Italian side has made a contract offer the former Olympique Marseille and Bayern Munich man.
Other than Salernitana, Ribery also has also been linked with a move to Hellas Verona and Lazio, who consider the 38-year-old good enough to provide quality in depth for Maurizio Sarri this season.

Turkish side, Fatih Karagumruk have also submitted a proposal to the winger that should see him play for the club until 2023, while Salernitana’s offer would only last until 2022.
The Italian side are prepared to offer up to €1.5 million plus bonuses and hope that the player’s desire to remain in Italy will be enough to make the player sign for the club.
Ribery spent the last two seasons with Fiorentina after leaving German side, Bayern Munich when his contract with his contract with the club expired.
Salernitana’s campaign in Serie A so far has not gone as expected, the club is yet to pick up a single point after two games, conceding seven in the process.
Lazio goalkeeper, Pepe Reina, has shared his impressions about new Lazio boss, Maurizio Sarri.
Speaking in an interview with Marca, the Spaniard expressed his thoughts on his new coach, pointing out that his approach is a bit different from what the team had been used to under former coach, Simone Inzaghi who departed for Inter over the summer.
“With Sarri, it’s a completely different Lazio. We have to adapt and we are a bit behind in this sense. We really need to get the coach’s ideas as soon as possible.
“We have have to defend better than last year and not concede those 55 goals. That’s goal number one. Sarri presses and tries to have control of the pitch and the ball…when possible.”
