Robben rules out Van Gaal reunion

Speculative reports have suggested Robben may consider reuniting with new United boss Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.

Robben, however, insists such talk is without substance.

"Manchester United? That's not an option. I am staying at Bayern Munich. Period," he told De Telegraaf.

"And I cannot imagine that Bayern would want to sell me. I have only just renewed my contract and we are happy with each other. It would have been a different story had I been unhappy.

"I would have been open to a move then, because I had a great time under Van Gaal at Bayern. He has been very important for my career. However, fact is that I am very happy at my current club.

"Van Gaal and [Pep] Guardiola are the best coaches I have ever worked with. I am feeling well and I'm going nowhere. There's a zero percent chance that I will join Manchester United.

"I think United did great to appoint Van Gaal."
