The onetime Blues star is said to be on the verge of leaving the Allianz Arena by summer, after somewhat having a disappointing season by all standards. The winger, who once played under Mourinho between 2004 and 2007 has been however linked with a move back to the EPL, with the Manchester Clubs at lodger heads over his services, but Chelsea could have a surprise bid in the offing.
During his time at the Stamford bridge, the Netherlands international amassed 67 appearances and 15 goals over a course of 3 seasons. He had a 2-season spell with Spanish giants, Real Madrid before moving on to Bayern Munich where he has enjoyed most success at the club level. Despite his frequent injury woes, the 31 year-old has been a key member of the squad, and his absence was one of the reasons the Guardiola-led side fell to Barcelona at the Champions League semifinals.
If Chelsea so want, they could pip both contenders in Robben’s signing, which is said to be around 24 million pounds in transfer fees. With his pace on the wings, ease of getting past defenders, and ability to score driven-shots, he will no doubt contribute a lot to the Mouriho-led side who could do with his Champions League’s experiences next season in their quest to a UEFA title glory.
In the German League this season, Arjen Robben has only been afforded 22 games due to his injuries, yet he has managed to find the back of the net 17 times and make 7 assists, guiding his side to a league trophy in the process. The 86-time capped Netherlands forward will no doubt bring fresh quality to the Stamford bridge side, and they can get him if they so wish.
