There’s a few whispers in the Football Transfer Tavern today that Manchester City are keen to sign Dutch star Arjen Robben from Bayern Munich in a surprise £20 million summer deal.
Recent newspaper reports made clear that new boss Pep Guardiola does not see a future for Arjen Robben with the Champions League finalists after the arrival of Borussia Dortmund starlet Mario Gotze in the summer.
This has today led to suggestions from Spanish daily newspaper Sport that the 29-year-old could make a dramatic return to England with City ready to swoop. The former Chelsea man has been put up for sale by Bayern as Guardiola makes his mark on his new side.
Other European clubs who are believed to be interested include Italian giants Juventus and Turkish side Galarasaray but neither of them can compete with the English club in terms of money they can offer to Robben.
Current Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini is expected to take over from Roberto Mancini next term and he could be making the former Chelsea and Real Madrid man his first signing after his arrival in the Premier League.
Will Robben be pulling on the famous light blue shirt next season? Rate this rumour below.
