Real Madrid president Ramon Calderon claims the club could sign Hamburg star Rafael van der Vaart this weekend.

Reports in Spain suggest an improved bid of 10million has been accepted and, with the two clubs set to meet in London this weekend at the Emirates Cup, Calderon is confident Van der Vaart is only days away from becoming a Madrid player.

"That´s certainly a possibility and we are waiting to come to an agreement with Hamburg," he told Spanish sports daily AS. "It´s an operation that isn´t causing difficulties."
