Arjen Robben dismisses speculation linking him with switch to Manchester City
The Bayern Munich forward is focusing on this month's Champions League final
Tuesday 14 May 2013
Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has shrugged off speculation linking him with a move back to England, claiming he has no desire to leave German giants Bayern Munich.
The Dutchman has been the subject of many reports in both England and Germany that suggest a possible move to Premier League outfit Manchester City is on the cards but he has denied any such claims, insisting he is happy to see out his contract at the Allianz Arena.
"I am not dealing with this speculation. There is so much speculation but I only want to deal with football.
"I still have two years on my deal so why should I leave? It is all about performance on the pitch and in the past games, I have shown I can contribute here at Bayern."
The 29-year-old joined the Munich club in 2009 and went on to finish as a runner-up in the 2010 and 2012 Champions League finals.
Now, he will hope to feature in his third as Bayern Munich prepare to face Borussia Dortmund in London later this month, still with the dream of completing the treble intact after already winning this season's Bundesliga and still with the German Cup final to play against VfB Stuttgart on June 1.
Robben endured a difficult spell at the start of the current campaign but has since regained form to win back his spot in the starting line-up, potentially helping his club to unprecedented glory - an aim that he claims is his primary focus.
"There has been so much speculation in the past month and I am only focused on Bayern.
"We want to win the title on May 25 and that is the only thing that counts."
