Frank Ribery would prefer a move to Real Madrid rather than Barcelona according to the player's agent Alan Migliaccio.
The two Spanish giants have been reportedly chasing the 26-year-old all summer with Chelsea and Manchester United also linked.
Bayern Munich officials have stated on numerous occasions that the winger is not for sale but the player is said to want a move to the Bernabeu.
The French international, who shares the same agent as former Real maestro and current advisor Zinedine Zidane, would likely cost around £40million but Migliaccio added that any deal would not be completed until next month.
"Ribery would prefer to play for Real Madrid than Barcelona," Migliaccio told RAC-1.
"The player has talked with Zinedine Zidane and he wants to play for Los Blancos for him.
"But at this moment everything is blocked because the people at Bayern are on holiday until the end of the month.
"I can't say anything else until we meet them in the next few weeks."
