Man City, Tottenham target Robben pens new Bayern deal

Arjen Robben has cleared up any doubt regarding his Bayern Munich future by signing a two-year contract extension.

The Dutch international was being targeted by the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham with reports suggesting he was keen to leave the Allianz Arena in the summer after a run-in with teammate Franck Ribery.

But it was today confirmed that Robben had penned a new deal with the German giants which will keep him in Munich until 2015.

"I've always emphasised that I feel very, very settled in Munich and at FC Bayern," Robben told the club's official website.

"This is the reason I'm glad to extend my contract ahead of its expiry. FC Bayern is like a family to me. Two of my three children were born in Munich, and my family and I feel at home here.

"This contract extension is also the right decision for me from a sporting perspective.

"We have a magnificent team, and I'm certain we'll enjoy the maximum possible footballing success in the years to come."
