Ribery claims Eden Hazard would be a fine fit at Bayern

Apparently former Chelsea midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is being touted as a possible replacement to the Robben/Ribery duo at Bayern Munich, and interest is advanced enough that the press are asking Bayern players about him. All well and good, right?

Except for the fact that Franck Ribery used that as an excuse to endorse the acquisition of Eden Hazard instead.

He's not a player who takes the ball and starts dribbling, and likes to have the opponent in front of him. De Bruyne's super when he has the space on the counter attack, but at Bayern you usually only have three, four metres -- no huge spaces. But he is a good player, and he is still young. He can still learn.

[But Eden Hazard] attacks all of the time. He loves to run at his opponent. But he plays at Chelsea. This could be very expensive for Bayern.
