Robben agrees Bayern move

Spanish giants Real Madrid’s winger Arjen Robben has confirmed that he has accepted an offer to join Bavarian giants Bayern Munich.

The Dutchman’s future had been the subject of intense speculation all summer following the arrivals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka.

A return to England had been mooted for Robben with Tottenham credited with an interest in the former Chelsea star, and in recent days Manchester United have also been linked with the player.

But it seems Bayern have beaten their rivals by agreeing a €25m deal with Real to bring the Dutch international to the Allianz Arena and Robben believes moving to Bayern is the best option for him as he is unlikely to be playing regularly for Real this season.

“This morning I made my decision. This is the best choice for me,” Robben told Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad.

Bayern are hoping to tie up a deal for the 25-year-old in the next 48 hours as they look to have him available for this week’s clash with reigning champions Wolfsburg.

Robben is the third Dutchman on his way out of El Santiago Bernabeu this summer following the likes of Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Wesley Sneijder leaving the Spanish giants.

The news of Robben’s imminent arrival is sure to fuel speculation that Franck Ribery could leave Bayern before the close of the transfer window.

    I don’t know whats going on.

    I don’t get much opportunity to watch them play, but when I have Robben has been one of the most dangerous players, if not their most dangerous.

    I don’t understand the decision making process that is going on there. Certainly they need strength in depth.

    I am also partial to Robben being a Chelsea fan though.
