Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has refused to completely rule out the possibility of a return to the Premier League in the future, but has his heart set on spending the remainder of his top-level career in Bavaria.

Robben continues to be consistently linked with a return to England with Manchester City or Chelsea, where he spent three promising seasons largely scuppered by persistent injury problems.

The Dutchman also struggled to stamp his authority at Real Madrid but has finally realised his true potential at the Allianz Arena, culminating in scoring the winner in last season's Champions League final to secure a historic treble.

With just over 18 months left on his current Bayern contract Robben's future is certainly open for debate, but the wing wizard has insisted that his first option would be to sit down and secure a long-term stay in the Bundesliga with Pep Guardiola's side.

He told Süddeutsche Zeitung: "The club knows what they have with me, I know what I have with Bayern.

"I feel that I can play football for at least three (more) years at the highest level. I would like to do it here."

Since Guardiola took charge of Bayern last summer Robben has remained a permanent first-team fixture on the flank opposite Franck Ribery, but is currently sidelined for at least six weeks with a knee injury.
