Inter Milan join AC Milan in race to sign Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben – Serie A news
According to reports in Milan, defending Serie A champions, Inter Milan are looking to sign Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben. It has been reported that Inter Milan officials are closely monitoring the Dutchman’s situation at the Allianz Arena and are ready
to jump in the race with arch-rivals AC Milan to sign the player.
For the past few months, the tricky winger has been linked with a move away from Bayern Munich owing to the club’s failings in the domestic league this season. Currently, Bayern Munich are in third place in the Bundesliga standings, a position that Bayern
Munich fans rarely see their club in. Furthermore, it has been rumoured that the Munich-based club’s officials are not happy with the player’s attitude. Last week, Arjen Robben was on the front pages of several German newspapers after the Dutchman openly criticised
team-mates Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philip Lahm for not playing to the best of their abilities this season. The comments resulted in Schweinsteiger storming out of a press-conference after he was questioned by a reporter regarding Robben’s comments.
On the other hand, Inter Milan officials are keen to add more creativity to their squad in the upcoming summer transfer window and consider the former Real Madrid man as a perfect addition to the squad. Inter Milan made an abysmal start to the season which
effectively ended their hopes to win back-to-back Scudetti.
Furthermore, Inter Milan were knocked out of UEFA Champions League at the hands of Schalke 04. Since joining Bayern Munich in the summer of 2009, Arjen Robben has become one of the best wingers in the world. In the 2009/10, the Dutchman guided Bayern Munich
to Bundesliga glory and was also part of the Bayern side that lost to Inter Milan in the final of the UEFA Champions League.
Signing the Dutchman might be a very tough ask for Inter Milan, as the 27-year-old is being chased by bitter rivals AC Milan. Moreover, Robben has also indicated that he would want to stay at the Allianz Arena for a longer duration but all this might change
should Bayern Munich fail to qualify for the next season’s edition of UEFA Champions League.
