Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says the club are preparing for “serious talks” with Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.
The pair are both entering the final six months of their respective deals at the Allianz Arena, leaving them eligible to speak to other clubs from January.
Bayern, though, are determined to retain the duo’s services and will look to tie them down to new contracts in the coming weeks.
"Franck and Arjen both have a big history here and we know what we have with them. Both are very important for us," the chairman told TZ.
"But it is important how they will continue. We definitely won't decide that in near future but there will be serious talks. Let's say in early spring."
