Toronto held 'exploratory' talks with Bayern Munich's Robben - source

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno shares his reasons why 35 year old Arjen Robben isn't the best fit for Toronto FC and Major League Soccer.
Jozy Altidore scored a goal and added an assist for Toronto FC, but the Reds could only manage a draw at home against Chicago Fire.

Toronto FC held "exploratory" talks with Arjen Robben but is not actively pursuing a move for the Bayern Munich winger, a source has told ESPN FC.

A report from Calciomercato over the weekend indicated that Toronto was interested in signing Robben, whose contract with Bayern expires at the end of the campaign. Robben has also reportedly drawn interest from Serie A side Inter Milan.

The source added that there were brief discussions between TFC and Robben through a mutual acquaintance, but that the talks were "exploratory, nothing more" with Toronto moving on to other targets as the Reds look to strengthen their squad ahead of the closing of the league's primary transfer window on May 7.

Injuries have limited Robben, 35, to just 15 league and cup appearances this campaign, with the Netherlands international scoring five goals.

He is not expected to suit up for Bayern again this season.

Robben has enjoyed a glittering career for both club and country. He made his professional debut in 2000 with Eredivisie side Groningen before moving on to PSV Eindhoven, Chelsea and Real Madrid. He has been with the Bavarian giants since 2009.

Robben has been part of 11 league title-winning teams and was a key component of the Bayern side that claimed the 2013 Champions League, netting the winner in a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the final.

At international level, Robben has made 96 appearances for the Netherlands, scoring 37 goals, and was part of the squad that reached the World Cup final in 2010
