Arjen Robben to Major League Soccer?

Bayern Munich’s living Dutch legend, 35, is said to like the thought of an MLS move more than an offer from Inter Milan, according to Calcio Mercato.

Out-of-contract this summer, Robben has not returned to Bayern’s side after thigh and calf injuries short-circuited a decent season (especially relative to his age).

Robben scored five goals and added two assists in all competitions, including a brace against Benfica in the UEFA Champions League.

He has 143 goals and 101 assists in 305 matches for Bayern in a career which includes Bundesliga, Premier League, La Liga, and Eredivisie titles between the Bavarian side, Chelsea, Real Madrid, and PSV Eindhoven.

Where could he fit, presumably as a Designated Player? Chicago could theoretically buy down Aleksandar Katai, who makes $1.3 million, with allocation money to reunite Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger. Or maybe Robben wouldn’t need a DP deal, somewhat like Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s start in MLS?
