European Giant Ready To Sign Bayern Munich Star Arjen Robben On A Free Transfer

Arjen Robben has already revealed that he will be leaving Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The 34-year-old former Netherlands international is out of contract at the end of the season and will be calling an end to his ten-year stint with the Bavarians.

"I can say that this is my last year and it is good like that," he said.

"The club moves on and I may move on. It is the end of a very good and long period. I won't stop completely yet."

According to FC Inter News (via Football Italia), Inter Milan are ready to snap up the Bayern Munich winger on a free transfer in the summer.

It is also added that Robben's 'entourage' were the ones that have suggested him to move to the San Siro.

I Nerazzurri will face a challenge in landing him, especially as the former Chelsea and Real Madrid player has already received an offer to play for another club.

Robben revealed last month that it was the right time to leave Bayern Munich.

"Of course it's a big step, which you don't just make in one day," he told Kicker.

"I thought about it a lot and it feels good that it's now out, also for the fans and the club. It was the right point in time.

"The club wants to change the face of the team and I want to prepare my future. I am simply happy and grateful that there is clarity for both parties."

While his future plans remain unclear for the moment, Robben has even hinted that he could retire if the right opportunity did not come up.

"That's not entirely clear, perhaps I will stop playing -- it's about waiting and seeing what possibilities there are," he explained.

"If offers come in, I'll really consider them 100 per cent and if it's something nice, I'll play on, but if no ideal offers come, then that could be it.

"I have three children and they also must be happy, so it's not just about offers from China or places in the desert.

"The family plays a very important role in every decision of mine."

Robben could be the second player to arrive at Inter on a free transfer, with recent reports suggesting that they could sign Atlético Madrid captain Diego Godín in the summer.

Should Robben sign for Inter?
