OFFICIAL: Fiorentina sign Ribery

Fiorentina have officially signed former Bayern Munich and France winger Franck Ribery on a free transfer.

Ribery has put pen to paper on a two-year contract with Fiorentina, reportedly worth €4m a season plus bonuses.

The Viola also confirmed in a statement that he would be unveiled on Thursday at 16:30 BST.

The 36-year-old began his career at hometown club Boulogne and later played for the likes of Galatasaray and Olympique Marseille.

However, he is best known for his 12-year spell at Bayern, whom he joined in 2007, going on to win a record nine Bundesligas and the Champions League in his 425 appearances, which also yielded 124 goals.

He played 81 times for France, helping them reach the 2006 World Cup Final, where they lost to Italy.

Ribery becomes Fiorentina’s fifth major summer signing after Pol Lirola, Milan Badelj, Kevin-Prince Boateng and Erick Pulgar.
