A growing perception of life in Major League Soccer has helped the league secure some of the world’s biggest names, and a Bayern Munich star isn’t ruling out a move to the United States when his contract expires this summer.
Arjen Robben has enjoyed a tremendous career in Europe, particularly in his nine-year career with Bayern, but now his time with the German giants could be nearing an end.
“That’s exactly the current topic of conversation at my kitchen table at the moment, when talking to friends and family,” Robben said when asked about the possibility of carrying out his career in MLS, China or Doha.
“Now is the time that I have to make a decision. A few years ago, it was usually relatively straightforward but I am approaching the end [of my career] now and I have a lot to think about. It’s not easy but it’s also exciting. A lot is still open but I have already ruled out certain things in my head — but they are staying private.”
The 34-year-old also suggested that he would be open to playing for a couple more seasons.
“At the moment I feel very fit, very good and believe that I can play at the highest level for another year or two – that’s my goal too,” Robben said.Follow @MattReedFutbol
