Bayern dismiss Robben speculation

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insists Arjen Robben will sign a new contract with the Bavarian giants, amid reported interest in the Dutch winger's signature from a host of Premier League clubs.

The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of next season and, as of yet, has not given a clear indication that he will remain at the Allianz Arena beyond the terms of his current deal.

According to talkSPORT, Robben's reluctance to commit to Bayern has alerted Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham, although Rummenigge has attempted to allay any fears that Robben may leave Munich.

"I guarantee that no stars will leave," Rummenigge told Bild. "The agreement [with Robben] is as good as signed. Arjen will stay at Bayern in the long-term."

Should, however, Robben decide against penning a new deal, then he will have no shortage of suitors, with City, Liverpool and Spurs surely only three of several clubs who would entertain the idea of making a bid.

Robben's experience of playing in the Premier League makes him an attractive prospect for English clubs, while he has been in particularly impressive form this season.

Robben has contributed 17 goals and nine assists for Bayern and, should City, Liverpool or Spurs secure a deal for his signature, it would be quite a coup indeed.
