Now, according to the British publication, Bleacher Report, former Holland international would rather follow in the footsteps of his ex-Bayern teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger, who joined MLS franchise Chicago Fire in 2017.
Arguably one of the best players in his position over the past ten years, Robben does not lack suitors, in spite of his age, with several MLS outfits lurking in the shadows, waiting for him to move across the Atlantic Ocean.
Although former Real Madrid man past his prime, the style of football enforced in the United States could help him enjoy a prolific final chapter of his professional football career.
