According to reports circulating on the internet, Bayern Munich veteran Arjen Robben is a January target for Manchester United!
It’s no secret that LVG likes his wingers and is currently unhappy with the resources that fulfill the requirement at United. And the Dutchman wants to rectify the problem come January by swooping in for his compatriot Arjen Robben!
The Dutch international has not had a lot of game time at Bayern Munich due to injury but has made a great comeback. Especially his performance against Arsenal in the Champions League tie at the Allianz Arena where he scored a goal from his first touch off the bench.
The player would be perfect for Van Gaal’s requirements but there are a few issues with regards to this transfer.
Robben’s age is not a strong point for him. At the age of 31, it would seem farfetched to bid a high price for him considering the resale value. Also, though Robben has discussed his strong bond with the United boss, he has made it quite clear in a number recent interviews that he is happy at Bayern Munich and that there is no question of him leaving any time soon.
There is also the fact that ever since his return, Robben has been played in almost every match, showing what an integral part he is in Guardiola’s team. With all these reasons, it seems the deal is highly unlikely to happen, but United fans can still hope that the bond between Van Gaal and Robben is hopefully strong enough to bring the Dutch star to the Theatre of Dreams.
