Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are hopeful Arjen Robben will take Louis van Gaal up on the offer he made being reported by The Telegraph.
The incoming United coach has reportedly told the winger that there will always be a space for him at Old Trafford should he ever decide to quit Bayern Munich.
Robben shone under van Gaal’s leadership during the World Cup, helping the Dutch to a third-placed finish.
The former Chelsea winger has ruled out a move to Old Trafford this summer, but admits he shares a ‘special bond’ with van Gaal, which hinted at a possible reunion in the future.
“I have a special bond with him. He is the most important coach in my career,” Robben said.
“(Moving to United) is not an option though. I will stay at Bayern Munich.”
The 30-year-old has been nominated for the player of the tournament award, after scoring three goals and providing one assist as the Dutch reached the World Cup semi finals.
