Man United Launch Stunning £40m Bid for Bayern Munich Winger Arjen Robben

Old Trafford side to offer big money for Allianz Arena flyer.

Man United are readying a massive £40m bid for Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben according to the Daily Star.

Old Trafford boss Louis van Gaal is clearly keen on bringing his Dutch national team charge back to the Premier League and an offer of such magnitude for a 30 year old may be tough for Robben’s Allianz Arena side to turn down.

Van Gaal brought Robben to the Bavarian club when he was in charge of the German giants and will look to repeat the trick this summer, though it should be noted that the former Chelsea and Real Madrid man is tied down to a long term contract with the Bundesliga side.

With the likes of Nani, Luis Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young all failing to impress in 2013/14 one can see why van Gaal would be targeting a winger signing and right now Robben is perhaps one of the best in the business.

Robben has spent five hugely successful seasons in Germany, racking up 89 goals in 166 appearances and helping Bayern Munich to three German league and cup doubles as well as securing a Champions League triumph and could therefore be open to a fresh challenge.
