Arjen Robben has quashed ‘insane’ reports he could leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season to join either Galatasaray or Inter Milan.
The 29-year-old struggled with a succession of injuries in the first half of the season and has been forced to settle for a place in coach Jupp Heynckes’ rotation system at the Allianz Arena.
The scenario has prompted speculation Robben could join up with Netherlands team-mate Wesley Sneijder in Istanbul or make the switch to Serie A, but the winger insisted there is no truth in the rumours.
“One day it’s Galatasaray, the next it’s Inter. It’s insane and none of this is in my head,” Robben told Bild.
“I’m solely thinking about (the match against) Hamburg, then Juventus and the return leg after that. It’s only about my team and our objectives. Anything else is written and fabricated, I have no influence on it.
“It could only annoy me if I listened to it. It is part of football, and if other clubs are interested in me, then that’s great and I’d respect that.
“I have no interest in making a change.”
Robben has scored six goals in 18 appearances for Bayern this season.
