Arjen Robben has said he expects to ink a new contract Bayern Munich soon, admitting he is eyeing life after football.

The Netherlands international, who turned 30 last month, has a contract until June 2015 and is hoping to agree to a two-year extension.

He says he expects to sign a new deal when a few “small details” have been finalised.

“It will probably be decided after another conversation,” Robben, a 2010 World Cup finalist, told Bild.

“The intention is there, from both sides, to extend, but there is no problem with salary, which I have read somewhere, – that is bullshit.”

Robben has been susceptible to knocks throughout his career and since joining Bayern in 2009, he has been injured 25 times, but still managed to score 52 goals, with 34 assists, in 92 Bundesliga matches.

He also hit the winner in last season’s Champions League final.

“I’m happy here. As a young professional, you always want to go higher, to go to better clubs,” he said.

“I was very young when I was at Real Madrid and Chelsea, but now I am at the best club in the world, I can’t get any better than Bayern.

“It could be (my last club).

“We have a super, super team and the future looks good, there is still time for titles and I want to win a few more.”

Robben says he is considering his career after football when he can live “like a normal person”.

“I often talk about it with my wife, we have bought a house in Holland and we’re looking for a piece of land to buy another one,” he said.

“We want to live a normal, free life and do things like go on ski holidays, accept birthday invitations, join a tennis club and I want to be the normal Arjen, a normal person, not a footballer.

“But I feel young and fresh, I have a few more years yet.”
Having started his career at Dutch side Groningen, Robben said one possibility is to eventually return to his roots as the club’s director of sport.

“I will always have a connection to the club, but I don’t know exactly what and I don’t know what I will eventually do,” he said.
