Who’s is Arjen Robben?
Arjen Robben (born 23 January 1984) is a Dutch footballer who plays for the German Bundesliga clubBayern Munich. Though often classified as a forward, he usually plays behind the forwards (inside position) as a winger, and he is also known for his dribbling skills, speed, crossing ability and his accurate long-range shot. He is also a part of the Netherlands national teamand has appeared at Euro 2004, the 2006 World Cup, Euro 2008 and at the 2010 World Cup.
Robben first came to prominence with Groningen, for whom he was player of the year for the 2000–01Eredivisie season. Two years later he signed for PSV, where he became the Netherlands’ Young Player of the Year and won an Eredivisie title. The following season Robben’s signature was pursued by leading English clubs, and after protracted transfer negotiations he joined Chelsea in the 2004 close season.
Robben’s Chelsea debut was delayed through injury, but upon returning to fitness he helped Chelsea to consecutive Premier League titles, and was the FA Premier League Player of the Month in November 2005. After a third season in England which was punctuated by injury, Robben moved to Spanish club Real Madrid for €35 million. In August 2009, Robben transferred to Bayern Munich for a fee of around €25 million, scoring two goals on his debut. In his first season in Munich, Bayern won the league title, Robben’s fifth league title in eight years, and got to the Champions League final. After his first season with the Bavarian club, the player was also named Footballer of the Year in Germany.

Football Fans Cast:
The Dutch winger needs no introduction to the Premier League and proved during his years at Chelsea what a world class performer he is. Robben has been absolutely scintillating this season for Bayern and the German giants are so desperate to keep hold of him that they are prepared to make him the highest paid player in their history. Robben has so far refrained from entering negotiations, but with a little over 12 months left on his contract, Bayern will reportedly be holding out for as little as £10m to avoid losing him nothing in a year’s time.
According to the Mirror, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are all in the hunt for Robben, who has 15 months left on his Bayern contract. The paper speculates that the German club could cut their losses this summer and offload Robben for as little as £10m. Chelsea’s internal crisis means it would be unlikely the Dutch master would sign on for another term at the Bridge so it could be that Robin van Persie talks his international teammate into a move to the Emirates.
