Hamburg have confirmed Rafael van der Vaart is close to joining Real Madrid.

The Holland midfielder has been linked with the Spanish champions for the past couple of months but the clubs have yet to reach agreement on a fee, with Hamburg rejecting bids of six and nine million euros for the 25-year-old.

"Nothing has yet been signed, but we expect things to move on during the course of today (Monday)," explained a Hamburg spokesman.
