Robben expected to stay at Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes believes Dutch winger Arjen Robben will sign a contract extension to stay at the German side beyond 2013.

Heynckes says ”I personally expect Arjen to sign sometime during the next games. I think he’s now showing again how important he is for Bayern.”

Robben scored the winning goal for Bayern to beat Nuremberg 1-0 and close the gap on Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. He has been involved in 15 of Bayern’s 28 goals during seven consecutive wins.

German media reports suggest the 28-year-old Robben will be joined next season by Borussia Moenchengladbach defender Dante, while Peru striker Claudio Pizarro could return from Werder Bremen with Croatian striker Ivica Olic reportedly joining Wolfsburg.
