Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hinted that Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery will be offered new contracts at the Allianz Arena.

Both Robben and Ribery have had their injury problems in recent seasons and as it stands, the attacking pair will be out of contract in June 2017.

Rummenigge, however, has branded the duo “incredibly important” to Bayern and suggested that extensions to their current contracts will arrive.

“I do not rule out that both will sign renewals with Bayern,” Rummenigge told Kicker. “We all know how incredibly important they are, both on and off the pitch. But both will have to be patient for a bit. It is only normal to wait a bit longer with players who are older than 30.”

Robben was restricted to 15 Bundesliga appearances during the 2015-16 campaign, while Ribery appeared in 13 league games for the German champions.
