Real Madrid winger Arjen Robben believes his Holland team-mate Rafael van der Vaart will soon be joining him in the Spanish capital.

Reports in Spain claim the 25-year-old Hamburg playmaker is set to join the Primera Liga champions on Monday after the two teams meet each other in London over the weekend in the Emirates Cup.

Robben has welcomed the news, admitting the situation of his international team-mate reminds him of his own transfer from Chelsea last season. "At the moment he (Van der Vaart) is not here yet. But he´s a great player. He´s a great signing for Madrid," he told Spanish newspaper AS.
