Report: Barcelona Eye Bayern Munich Midfielder Arjen Robben

The Dutchman is under consideration by the Blaugrana.
Barcelona are weighing up the possibility of making a move for Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Spanish champions are believed to be looking to add to their left wing as reports indicate Thierry Henry will soon embark on a new experience in the United States.

Juan Mata of Valencia has been mooted as a likely candidate for the post, but with Los Che unwilling to sell any more of their jewels in case David Silva follows David Villa out of the club, Barcelona are looking at alternatives.

Robben, who left Real Madrid for a reported fee of €25 million, has been in scintillating form since joining Bayern Munich, whom he helped to a runners-up finish in the Champions League last month.

His performances have not gone unnoticed at the Camp Nou, but signing Robben would prove to be a stern test for Barcelona: after holding on to Franck Ribery despite much interest, it is believed the Bavarian club will never consider less than €40 million to part company with their prized Dutcman.
