Bayern Munich winger Robben reveals Juventus negotiations

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben admits he held talks with Juventus two seasons ago.

Robben famously turned down Juve via text.

"It did not depend on Juventus, I was happy at Bayern Munich at that time and that is why the transfer did not happen," the 30-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Juventus are a fantastic club and if such an important team shows an interest in you, then it is an honour.

"I was very clear with them, I sent a text message to thank them and show that I appreciated their interest.

"The Bianconeri told me that the door would always be open for me."
