OFFICIAL: Arjen Robben signs for Bayern Munich

Saturday, August 29, 2009

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben for a fee believed to be in the region of £22 million.

Robben, one of several Dutch players being sold by the Spanish giants, has been awarded the number 10 shirt - last worn at Bayern by his compatriot Roy Makaay - after he passed a medical and signed a four-year contract in Munich.

The 25-year-old was surplus to requirements at the Bernabéu following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and Real have therefore opted to cash in on the former Chelsea star.

"I feel very welcome here," Robben told Bayern's official website.

"This is a big club with a great history and I am delighted to be here now."

Speculation has been rife in the last 24 hours about a potential swap deal seeing the much-coveted Franck Ribéry heading the other way.

But the noise coming from the German giants is the same as it has been all summer - the Frenchman is going nowhere.

Bayern general manager Uli Hoeneß said: "Our intention is to have Robben play on the right and Ribéry on the left, making our team even more attractive."
