Bayern Munich thrashed Borussia Dortmund 5-0 in Der Klassiker on Saturday, and now look in pole position to lift the Bundesliga winners’ trophy once again.
But next season could prove more of an ordeal for the Bavarian side as they look ahead to the summer transfer window. A number of players have been linked with a move to the Allianz Arena, but some could be forced out of it as well.
One such name is Arjen Robben. The superstar Dutchman has been at Bayern for a decade now, but his contract with the club is nearing an end. In fact, it is clear that he won’t be offered a new deal in Munich.
With his playing time dwindling and injuries increasing, one final career move looks to be on the agenda for the 35-year-old, and he seems to have made his choice.
Calcio Mercato are reporting that the winger is in favour of a move to Major League Soccer (MLS) instead of Inter Milan, as was originally reported.
Robben’s former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is one of the names expected to take over at Inter in the summer, and having the experience of Robben could have helped the Serie A giants, but the Munich man has reportedly decided to pick US as his preferred destination.
FOX Sports Asia Predicted Rating: 3/5 – Robben moving to MLS would certainly be the last hurrah as he nears the end of a stellar career that has seen him win top honours with clubs such as Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
