Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart claims to have been surprised by reports that he has agreed to sign a five-year contract with Real Madrid.

The Spanish media reported on Thursday that a 20million euros deal had been agreed and the Holland midfielder´s move to the Madrid giants is imminent.

However, Van der Vaart insisted Marca´s report was the first he had heard about it and told the Bild Newspaper: "Gosh! I have read about it and now have to get a bit more information. I don´t want to say any more about it at the time being."
