Regardless if Bayern Munich have denied the bid or not, trust our owner Roman Abramovich to ensure we pay the highest inflated transfer fee possible.
So let's assume that happens.
Here is why we can win the Premier League by signing Ribéry.
Let's not put ourselves in the situation where potentially we become too reliant on Luka Modrić.
Without Modrić, we can't play football.
Let's make opposing teams fear the interchanging, incisive, flair-driven and dangerous midfield we could potentially have with Frank Lampard, Juan Mata and Franck Ribéry.
Manchester City's movement and fluid midfield really conjure up some passing movements which were reminiscent of Barcelona.
8-2 sums up how well Manchester United's midfield have been playing.
We need a chance to compete with these two teams by signing someone like Franck Ribéry who can impact the game by himself whilst also being an invaluable midfielder.
By competing, we give ourselves the best opportunity to win.
Granted Franck Ribéry has enjoyed running full-backs off the pitch on the left side of midfield, the prospect of having Juan Mata on the left and Ribéry on the right is a Premiership winning combination.
Rather then having midfielders like Ramires (he's played great for us) running around the pitch, why not make opposing teams run like crazy chasing the likes of Ribéry and Mata.
Let's take the attack to opposing teams.
If our owner Roman Abramovich wants to spend money like there's no tomorrow, we may as well start compiling a team of world-class players, rather than paying a king's ransom for fading and deteriorating former stars.
If we're going to pay a premium, let's get a world class player.
Last season watching Franck Ribéry in the Bundesliga was a delight.
In a game against Hamburg, Ribéry was directly involved in five of the six goals. What a performance.
At one point of the season, the Frenchman had accumulated nine assists and two goals in seven games.
Most people lambasted Manchester City for just buying stars who couldn't gel.
That's ridiculous because world-class talent shines through; plus remember what José Mourinho did for us.
What's holding us back?
It's our stagnant, lackluster, creative-less midfield which not only plays dull football, but we're not even getting the results.
Playing a holding midfielder who can't defend and doesn't pressure will not get us anywhere.
Look at Barcelona's experimenting with Cesc Fàbregas, Thiago, Xavi, Alexis Sanchez, Lionel Messi all on the field in the 5-0 trashing of Villarreal.
By doing away with John Obi Mikel, and playing Ramires there, while going top heavy hold us in good stead.
Who cares if the opposing team has scored two goals, when we've already scored eight?
Chelsea supporters, who do you want and why?
Franck Ribéry or Luka Modrić?
