Robben rules out Galatasaray transfer

The winger has rubbished speculation linking him with a move to Turkey and says his side have unfinished business with the Champions League

Arjen Robben has denied rumours he is set to leave Bayern Munich for Galatasaray this summer.

Pep Guardiola will take over from Jupp Heynckes at the end of the season and that has led to a wave of speculation over the potential comings and goings at the Allianz Arena.

But after scoring in both legs of Bayern’s 7-0 aggregate win over Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Champions League this week, Robben is adamant he is going nowhere.

“Basically, I will not go to Turkey,” the 29-year-old told Dutch radio station 538.

“We didn’t have any contacts with a club from that country. I want to stay here, in Munchen. I like this place very much.”

The winger then revealed his desperation to conquer Europe with the Bavarians following the hearbreak of recent seasons.

”This year, we must win the trophy. It is the third time in four years that we are in the final. That is unique, but now we have to finish it,” he said.

Bayern will face Borussia Dortmund in an all-German Champions League final on May 25.
