Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben has hinted that he may leave Bayern Munich this summer if the German giants fail to qualify for the Champions League. Bayern currently sit third in the Bundesliga, which would be enough to get them into the qualifying rounds of UEFA's premier competition next season, but they are only one point ahead of Hannover 96 and have just six games left to secure their place.

Robben said:

"I am happy here in Munich and want to stay here. But I have learned from the past that one never knows what's in the future.

"I have always said that I do not want to play in the Europa League. Bayern Munich are a team that absolutely have to play in the Champions League."

I would love it if he came back. LOVE IT.

If it wasn't for him being out injured for at least half a season (three quarters in the PL) every season, I would put in some of my own money to get him.

What a player he has become though. Always knew he was going to be a world-class player when he was at PSV but never expected him to become this good. Too bad he's made of glass.

If we bring him back for a good price.

Accept that he will get injured sometimes and use him as a luxury player (brilliant luxury player) .

If we class him as a key player and he is out a lot our form will suffer (IE Arsenal without Van Persie).

But i would take him back in a shot.

He's a class and I'd welcome him here. I agree that he's selfish and injury prone, but he is an also extremely good player who can decide a match on his own. Besides that, we really need 1 good winger who can beat people.

Agreed! Both legs of Bayern versus Inter showed that! He's moody & selfish.. Not a good combination :lol:

And Gomes profitied twice off his 'selfishness' in the two games.

Robben is an incredible football player. Even if he plays 30 games a season it would be worth it.

One of my fav. wingers and was pretty pissed off when he left but he was way too injury prone and I just don't see us going after him with other cheaper talent on the market.

No.

The downsides have been mentioned already, so pointless repeating them. One other major disadvantage for me atleast is that he's quite predictable. Mazy run, cutting inside and getting the shot away - Robben in a nutshell.

Defenders may know what he will do 9 times out of 10 but then there is a small matter of stopping him.

Do you remember the Liverpool and Fullham games when we were losing and drawing respectively but cruising in our play like we were 5-0 up NO URGENCY AT-ALL, if we had Rooben then it would have been a completely different matter.

I'd say go in for him!! he's a left-sided midfielder, and could easy replace misfiring Malouda. He's had the most appearances for us as well, so he knows us quite a bit!!

No way - he'll want huge wages and as he gets older will be even more injury prone. If we could loan him for a season would be a good bet....
