Manchester United could be set for more disappointment in the transfer market once again after Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben claimed that he is not looking for a move to the Premier league outfit. It has been rumoured in the last few days that Robben will be a major transfer target for the summer after the club failed to get Toni Kroos. The 24-year-old midfielder has been widely linked with United and it was reported that the Premier league outfit had agreed a £ 20 million deal with the German club.
Kroos was out of contract next summer and hence they decide to sell him for this substantial figure rather than lose him for nothing. Robben has also been linked with United as has been Thomas Müller. The appointment of Louis van Gaal – the former Bayern Munich manager – has led to a number of Bayern star being linked with the club. Robben was brought to Bayern Munich by van Gaal a few years ago. He has been an ever present for the club during this last few years, which is a relief to him following a period of trouble at Real Madrid.
He has been linked with a return to the Premier league where he played for three years with Chelsea but it seems that he is happy at Bayern for the time being.
“Manchester United? That’s not an option. I am staying at Bayern Munich. Period. And I cannot imagine that Bayern would want to sell me. I have only just renewed my contract and we are happy with each other. It would have been a different story had I been unhappy. I would have been open to a move then, because I had a great time under Van Gaal at Bayern. He has been very important for my career,” said Robben.
