Robben flirts with Juventus move

Arjen Robben admitted feeling flattered at interest from Juventus, but insisted he wants to stay at Bayern Munich.


The Netherlands winger, whose contract at the Allianz-Arena expires at the end of next season, has been linked with the Serie A leaders, who are looking to build a side capable of challenging for the Champions League again after their domestic resurgence.

"Juventus have had a great season," he told SkyItalia. "They are trying to build something for the future, a future I think will be big.

"I am happy at Bayern but I have not signed a new contract extension and you never know in football.

"It’s a pleasure when a great club like Juventus is interested."

Robben, who joined Bayern from Real Madrid in a 25 million euro deal three years ago, is set to be offered a two-year contract extension by the Germans.

Juventus are top of Serie A with six matches remaining, one point clear of defending champions Milan.
