Arjen Robben could make way for Marco Reus- Bundesliga News

Bayern Munich injury-prone winger, Arjen Robben, is believed to make way for Borussia Monchengladbach attacker, Marco Reus, next year during summers. Robben’s injury is perhaps the only reason for Munich to part ways with the Dutch international.

It has recently been revealed that the Bavarian giants are considering bringing in Marco Reus in place of oft-injured winger, Arjen Robben. The Dutchmen has been one of the prolific goal scorers for the Reds but the consistent injuries have stopped him from
making continuous inroads.

Robben has already spent most part of first half of this season on the sidelines and recently made a comeback against Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga. However, the winger failed to make any serious impact and later on was ruled out of the Champions League
game against Manchester City due to flu.

With Reus’ transfer on the cards, it is firmly assumed that the Netherlands international would have to part ways with the Allianz-Arena outfit prior to the start of next season.

Munich officials also confirmed of their desire and, at the same time, advised Robben to work hard on his fitness if he wants to prolong his stay at the club.

Bayern manager, Jupp Heynckes, showed displeasure at the player’s fitness but still regarded him an asset for his side. He was of the view that Robben’s departure would be huge upset for the club as the attacker is enormously talented and can single handedly
win games for his side.

Reus’ current contract with Borussia Monchengladbach is set to expire in 2015 but a buy-out clause would come in effect from June when the striker could be purchased for a minimum of 17.5 million euro.

Gladbach officials have also shown awareness to Bayern’s interest in the youngster and would only consider any offer if Reus himself wishes to part ways with the club.

If the 22-year-old decides against Bayern’s desire than the Bavarian giants would have an option of tying knots with Schalke’s Jefferson Farfan. Farfan will be available on a free transfer at the end of current 2011/12 campaign.

Robben has only made six league appearances this season, bagging four goals during the process.
