The former Real Madrid player has been a key figure at the Bundesliga giants for seven years, but the last year for Robben has been particularly difficult with his playing time being reduced. He now just wants to enjoy his football again before entering into discussions, saying “I don’t give thought to a new contract right now. I want to get fit again, and stay healthy after that. That’s my biggest wish. I want to be able to enjoy my football again. That’s it.”

According to Kicker, Robben has been subject to interest from Turkish club Besiktas recently. The Turkish club are hoping to entice the Dutchman with one last lucrative contract before retirement. However, Robben brushed off the interest saying “I appreciate any interest from other clubs. But right now that does not play a role.”

Robben is currently at €20 million having enjoyed spells at Real Madrid, Chelsea, PSV Eindhoven and FC Groningen before his move to Bayern Munich in 2009 for €24 million.
