Per Calciomercato, Bayern Munich legend Arjen Robben is in talks with MLS side Toronto FC to continue his playing career.

Robben, who has been sidelined since late November with a variety of ailments, has been working to get back on the field, while also planning the next stage of his career over the past few months. The 35-year-old may now be ready to make a decision.

MLS side Toronto FC are interested in signing Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben, Calciomercato exclusively understand. Robben has already announced that he will leave the Bavarian club at the end of the season. The Dutchman is currently injured and may not be able to feature for the club by the time the season ends.

We previously reported in an exclusive that that Robben will be more interested in a move to the MLS than a move to Inter Milan, who have held talks previously. We now understand that Toronto FC are interested in signing the Dutchman and have held talks already. Robben’s contract at Bayern expires at the end of the season after which he will be a free agent. The winger, as we understand, has held talks with Inter but he seems more inclined towards a move to the MLS than the Serie A.

A move to North America would likely represent the final chapter of the Dutchman’s glorious career.
