Juve line up €18m Robben bid

Juventus are preparing an €18m offer for Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

The newspaper suggests Robben has always been a favourite of Coach Antonio Conte, who was even more impressed after the Champions League quarter-final that saw Bayern beat Juve 4-0 on aggregate.

A move for the 29-year-old is looking more plausible now that Bayern Munich have announced the capture of Borussia Dortmund forward Mario Götze.

The Corriere dello Sport claims the Germans would be willing to release the Dutch international for around €18m.

Robben would fit the bill of ‘top player’ that Juventus are looking for and provide more width for tactical experimentation.

Bayern Munich are practically in the Champions League Final after thrashing Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday.
