Arjen Robben has admitted he could retire when he leaves Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old winger is set to depart the Allianz Arena after a decade and is yet to make a call on his next move.

Persistent fitness issues have hampered Robben’s final season in Bavaria, though he has still been linked with the likes of Inter and former clubs PSV and Groningen.

The Champions League winner revealed in January that several clubs had made contact, but all options remain on the table.

“I’m late in making a decision, but that has to do with my injury. I wanted to get back on the pitch and then think about my future,” Robben told a news conference on Tuesday.

“I hope to make a decision within one or two weeks, but I can’t promise anything.

“It’s not an easy choice to make. The whole package has to be right, not just in a footballing sense but also for my family.

“The easiest thing to do would be to stop. That is also an option for me, but I’m not sure whether I will do that.”
