Arjen Robben is his contract with Bayern Munich with a one-year extend to mid-2018.
According to the German Sport1 put the 32-year-old Orange-international Monday his signature under the new contract.
The contract extension for Robben does not come as a surprise. He said early this month that he expected that he reached an agreement with Bayern. “There are no major obstacles, we have a conversation had before the winter break,” said Robben at the time.
Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge dropped at the end of december in very similar terms. “I think we have the agreement in January to report. I am very optimistic. Both the parties want to be with each other,” he said.
