New deal offered as Chelsea and City look to pounce

Bayern Munich are determined to keep hold of Arjen Robben, amid rumours that Manchester City and Chelsea are looking to pounce.

According to reports in the Daily Mail, the German giants are looking to extend his existing deal at the Allianz Arena that is due to expire in the summer of 2013.

Robben showed why Bayern are so desperate to keep him after the Dutchman fired in a hat-trick at the weekend, but the German giants are fully aware that unless they can tie him down that they may have to let Robben leave in the summer, for a fee that could be as little as £10m.

The player’s father has conceded that there is firm interest in his son (Mirror) from the top club’s in England and that is why Bayern are prepared to make Robben the highest paid player in their history to ensure he remains in Munich.

Bayern  President Karl-Heinz Rummenigge feels that Arjen Robben makes the difference to the side and that is why he is determined to get him to commit to this new £170k a week deal:

“Arjen can make all the difference in a team. That’s why I want him to stay.”
