Top notch winger could be heading back to the Premier League!
Manchester United are preparing to ask Real Madrid how much they want for Arjen Robben now that the relationship between the clubs has calmed during talks about Cristiano Ronaldo.
Sir Alex Ferguson is reported to believe that the Dutchman’s arrival could help ease the loss of the Portuguese star, after being advised that Los Merengues are willing to let him go.
Madrid’s president, Florentino Perez, was rumoured to want all the Dutch players on the club’s books to be sold to raise funds this summer with Robben in particular being told he can go.
The Red Devils’ interest could alert Liverpool and Manchester City, but it is believed that United would have first refusal as they would cite the Ronaldo move for them to be given favourable terms.

Arjen Robben was at one point considered one of the most feared wingers on the planet but things have stuttered for the Dutchman somewhat at Real Madrid but at still just 25 the former Chelsea man has a lot to offer.
Rafa has apparently been looking at Robben as a potential replacement for Albert Rieira who he has not convinced Benitez in his first season. Sir Alex also sees Arjen as a left sided solution for Man United so it could hot up into a fierce struggle for the player who is of course also famed for falling to the floor whenever he is touched.
Still he is an exciting player who gets fans on the edge of their seats and he has shown his ability in the Premier League before and could well be up for a return to these shores.
Robben to Liverpool/Man United: A move away from Real Madrid seems inevitable, but who will win his signature?
