Bayern Munich signing Robben: I could have joined Barcelona

New Bayern Munich signing Arjen Robben admits he had interest from Barcelona before leaving Real Madrid.

Robben reckons Barca's rivalry with his former club Real Madrid would have made a move to the Nou Camp "impossible" and says he has no complaints.

Speaking on FC Groningen TV, he said: "There was interest from Barca, but I think it would be impossible to let me go there.

"But that's not my problem and the fact is that I am delighted to have signed for Bayern Munich."
