Robben's future at Bayern has been the subject of conjecture with reports suggesting they could be prepared to offload the Holland winger following the arrival of Mario Gotze.

However, Robben, who scored the winning goal in the Champions League final win over Borussia Dortmund last month, insists he is happy to stay at the Allianz Arena.

"It is football, nothing is a certainty. This is a profession where anything can happen," Robben told Bild.

"I want to avoid any speculation, though. I am feeling very well here and I have a contract until 2015. Leaving Bayern is not an option for me at this point.

"There is absolutely no reason to leave, so I intend to stay put."

Robben also moved to stress that he does not have any problems with Bayern team-mate Franck Ribery after a bust-up with the Frenchman last year.

The pair had a much-publicised confrontation during half-time of Bayern's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid last season, but Robben insists the duo have made up.

"It was quite difficult after what happened last year," added Robben. "I initially thought that we could no longer player together after he slapped me. I accepted his apologies, though, and forgave him.

"It's a lot of fun to play with Franck. He understands football like no one else. We have made up this season."
