Dutch winger Arjen Robben is on the verge of signing a new contract at Bayern munich, despite recent reports linking him with a Premier League return to Manchester United .
Robben had previously stated his dissatisfaction in the Bundesliga, after suffering criticism for his 'selfish' style of play and being dropped for three consecutive games by manager Jupp Heynckes.
However, the former Chelsea forward has been in sensational form since returning to the team and looks set to be rewarded with a lucrative new contract.
The 28-year-old has been the driving force behind Bayern's recent run of seven consecutive games as they close in on a Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup treble.
Heynckes confirmed their star player is now set to stay at the club.
"Internally this (contract extension) has been negotiated," said Heynckes. "I expect Arjen will put his signature to it in the coming period.
"He is showing how important he is for Bayern. Not only the winning goal this weekend but the way he plays for the team. That is what makes him so valuable for us."
