Leicester could make move for Robben
Leicester have emerged as surprise contenders to sign soon to be out-of-contract Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben.
Former Dutch international Robben will end his decade-long stay with Bayern at the end of the season and he could make his final appearance for the club in this weekend’s German Cup final against RB Leipzig.
Robben will not be short of suitors when his contract does come to an end and it appears Leicester have now moved to the front of the queue for the 35-year-old’s signature.
The former Chelsea star has also been linked with a return to PSV Eindhoven, while he has indicated that he may even consider bringing his 19-year playing career to an end if he does not receive a suitable offer.
‘It is an option (to retire), but I don’t know whether it will happen,’ Robben was quoted as saying by the BBC.
‘It is not an easy decision to make.
If you decide that you are going to keep playing, you have to find a place where everything is just right, not just in terms of football but also for my family.’
