Robben Considering Retirement Amid Bayern Talks

Veteran winger, Arjen Robben says he could consider retiring, as he awaits contract talks with Bayern Munich.

The 34-year-old Dutch is in the final months of his contract, and is waiting on a renewal.

Robben says he has set a date to sit down with Bayern Munich, but the prospect of retiring is alluring.

A man with 96 caps for the Netherlands to his name told Bayerischer Rundfunk: “I’m a bit impatient, but unfortunately a decision on the extension of my contract has not yet been made.

“With Karl-Heinz Rummenigge I have agreed that we will hold talks in April, then we will see.”

On the chances of him playing on into the 2018-19 campaign, Robben added: “I think that’s the hardest part of getting to an age where you know the end is coming closer, making the right decision is always difficult.

“I just have to wait and see what my gut feeling is, how the body feels. You have to take everything into account and then you make a decision in that moment.”
