Robben extends Bayern contract

Arjen Robben has extended his contract with Bayern Munich, signalling an end to transfer speculation linking him with Serie A.

The Dutch winger, who has previously had spells in England and Spain, has been linked through the season with a potential move to Italy, with Juventus reportedly an interested party.

However, following on from Robben’s alleged text message to a Bianconero official turning down their interest, the 28-year-old has extended his contract by a further two years to take him to the end of the 2014-15 season with the Champions League finalists.
