Arjen Robben: Progress is being made in contract talks

The Dutch winger, who has been with Bayern since 2009, is tied to the Bundesliga champions until the summer of 2015.

There is, however, a desire from all sides to prolong that agreement.

Robben remains a first team regular at the Allianz Arena and was a prominent figure in a side which landed an historic Treble in 2012/13.

Pep Guardiola considers the former Chelsea man to be key to his plans heading forward, and fresh terms would help to end any uncertainty surrounding his long-term future.

No paperwork has been signed as yet, but Bayern director Matthias Sammer claims discussions are progressing positively.

He told Kicker-Sportmagazin: "Talks regarding a new deal for Arjen Robben are ongoing.

"We are making some progress on it as both parties are keen to work out a new contract."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
