Arjen Robben confirms he wanted a Man United move over Chelsea

Arjen Robben: Man United over Chelsea

In the latest edition of FourFourTwo magazine, Bayern Munich and Dutch flyer Arjen Robben has stirred up Premier League rivalries.

Now 34, Robben spent three years at Stamford Bridge from 2004 to 2007.

He ended up leaving Chelsea to join Real Madrid in £25 million deal.

Robben scored 19 goals in 104 appearances for Chelsea.

During that time he won the Premier League twice, the League Cup twice and the FA Cup once.

Yet, according to Robben, he’d have preferred a move to Manchester United than Chelsea.

Arjen Robben on meeting Sir Alex Fergsuon

In the new interview with FourFourTwo, Robben has confirmed that he met with Sir Alex Fergsuon and he’d have jumped at a Man United move:

I had a very good conversation with [Ferguson] over dinner in Manchester and we spoke about football and life. I also went and had a good look around the training ground and everything was good.

But after I went back to PSV nothing happened. 

I spoke to Chelsea and I liked their plans. We had one meeting and everything was done pretty quickly. Had Manchester United offered me a deal straight after I met them, I would have signed there, but it didn’t happen and I’ve got no regrets.

Sevilla 1 – Bayern Munich 2

Robben was brought on as a second half sub on Tuesday night in the Champions League as Bayern won at Sevilla.

Pablo Sarabia fired Sevilla into the lead after the half hour mark, but Bayern were level soon after thanks to a Jesus Navas own goal.

Thiago Alcantara won the match for the Bavarians with a header from a Franck Ribery cross.
