Manchester City have made a shock £24m transfer move for Manchester United target Arjen Robben.

The Dutch winger has spent the last six years at Bayern Munich and was thought to have been a target for Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils last summer.

The 31-year-old winger has scored an impressive 19 goals this season but has been limited to 31 appearances in all competitions for the German giants due to a string of injuries.

Robben, who played for Chelsea between 2004-2007, won the Premier League title twice during his stint in west London and is said to be willing to move back to England, according to reports in Italy.

The Dutch wide man is contracted to Pep Guardiola’s side until 2017 and it is thought that Man City have pushed in front of their city neighbours for the winger’s signature.
