Arjen Robben has once again indicated that he sees his long-term future at Bayern Munich, saying that extending his contract with the German club beyond 2013 is only a ''formality.''

Robben tells the Sueddeutsche newspaper in an interview released online that ''Bayern is one of the best clubs'' in the world.

The Dutch winger arrived in Bayern in 2009 from Real Madrid. He is one of Bayern's most important players but has been often set back by various injuries.

Robben has said before that he would like to stay at Bayern.
