Arjen Robben (32) has agreed a one-year contract extension with FC Bayern, keeping him at Germany's record champions until 30 June 2018. The agreement was concluded between the FC Bayern board of directors, Arjen Robben and his agent Hans Robben.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge commented: "Arjen is one of the best players in the world in his position. He's played for us for almost eight years now and has become an important part of our club in this time. We're delighted he's going to pull on an FC Bayern shirt for a further year."

Arjen Robben commented: "I'm very happy that I'll be playing a further year for FC Bayern. The club is one of the best in the world and Munich has become a second home for me and my family. I want to continue playing at the highest level and win as many tophies as possible."

FC Bayern deputy chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen said: "Our talks with Arjen and his father Hans took place in a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. We reached a very amicable solution as partners to facilitate the continuation of our work together.“    

Robben joined FC Bayern from Real Madrid in the summer of 2009. He has since won the FIFA Club World Cup, the UEFA Champions League, the European Super Cup, five German championships and the DFB Cup four times. He has so far scored 82 goals in 152 Bundesliga appearances for FC Bayern, 14 goals in 23 DFB Cup ties, and 21 goals in 53 UEFA Champions League matches. Arguably his most important goal for FC Bayern was the winner in the 2013 UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund.
