Robben agrees personal terms with Real Madrid!!!

Report Says that-

Chelsea's Dutch international Arjen Robben has agreed personal terms over a move to Spanish champions Real Madrid, the BBC said Wednesday.

A transfer fee is yet to be agreed upon by the two clubs but according to reports from Spain the Chelsea winger's deal is expected to fetch around 20 million euros (26 million dollars).

The 23-year-old Robben, who has two years left on his contract with the London outfit, has been touted for weeks as a Real Madrid target and the Spanish club's president Ramon Calderon believes it is just a matter of time before they capture his signature.

"It is a negotiation which will take place in coming days or weeks," Calderon told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

"If the situation is favourable financially, I think that he is a player who could be brought in."

Robben has been in long drawn-out negotiations with Chelsea over a contract extension until 2012 but has not always been in favour with the club's Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho.

With the Blues having last week signed France international winger Florent Malouda from Lyon on a four-year contract for some 20 million euros Chelsea may opt to take Real's cash for Robben having covered their flank.
