The Premier League giant are said to have had a £40million bid turned down for Robben, who has signed a three-year extension to his deal at the Bundesliga giants.

An improved offer might tempt Bayern to cash in on the player, given that he is 31 next January.

However former United assistant boss Meulensteen believes Robben is happy to stay in Germany.

He said: “I’m sure Van Gaal would love to take Arjen Robben to United – that’s not a surprise.

“When I was at United, we looked at that possibility but then he signed for Bayern and is happy there.”
