Robben not planning to move

The Dutch winger's future at the Allianz Arena has been the subject of speculation in recent weeks following Bayern's disappointing campaign in the Bundesliga.

Bayern currently sit third in the table, but reports had suggested a failure to hang on to that UEFA Champions League spot could prompt Robben's exit.

AC Milan have been linked with a bid for the 27-year-old, although Bayern stressed earlier this month that they would not be looking to sell Robben.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid wide-man, who has two years left on his contract, has now come out to state that he is not considering his future at Bayern.


"I have never said I am planning to move on," affirmed Robben to Munich-based newspaper tz.

"I did not say I need to move on if we are only going to feature in the UEFA Europa League next season.

"I am contracted to Bayern, so I am going to remain.

"I intend to be honest towards the supporters of the club. It's a fact I have never thought about moving on from Bayern Munich."
