Arjen Robben has suggested he has been fielding enquiries from interested clubs, with the Bayern Munich superstar admitting he has put contract talks on hold.

Robben is one of European football's brightest talents and has a host of clubs on his tail. He has been at Bayern since leaving Real Madrid in 2009, but his contract is up in 2013 and talk has shifted to his future.

The forward has hinted in the past that he would fancy a second crack at the Premier League, having had an impressive spell at Chelsea under Jose Mourinho. He is not ruling out staying at Bayern, but the 28-year-old claims he is currently frustrated with life in Bavaria.

"It cannot be said that I am 100% certain I will stay with Bayern," Robben told Bild. "A lot has happened in recent weeks and I didn't play for three games in a row. Everybody saw that. It was not the best of times.

"It is not as if I have to sign a new deal next week. I am just concentrating on playing football. I still have a year on my contract with Bayern so there is no rush. You never know what happens in football - it is often very strange."

Robben insists he is "not speaking to other clubs" even though he admits that "maybe they do call from time to time".
