Arjen Robben Biography

Arjen Robben (born January 23, 1984 in Bedum, Netherlands) is a footballer for the Dutch national team and Chelsea, having transferred to the English club from Dutch power PSV Eindhoven.

In his younger years he played for the local football club VV Bedum. Later he transferred to FC Groningen. In his first season he won the Player of the Year prize at his club. After two seasons in Groningen, Robben went to PSV for €4.2 million. Again, after two seasons of great football at PSV, he was sold to Chelsea. Manchester United was the first in line to buy Robben. But PSV wasn't quite happy with their €7 million offer. Their chairman Harry van Raaij famously told Manchester United the most that money would buy them was a shirt with Robben's autograph. Chelsea eventually offered €18 million and PSV sold him. Read Full Bio >>
