Real Madrid have finally tabled a bid for Chelsea winger Arjen Robben, according his agent and father.
The Spanish giants have been linked all summer with the Holland international and have now made a reported £13.5million offer.
However, whether Real get their man is another story as just last weekend manager Jose Mourinho stated he thought Robben would be staying.
Chelsea have little need to raise funds although the summer capture of Florent Malouda from Lyon could well hinder Robben’s starting chances.
Robben’s agent and father Hans has now confirmed Real have bid for his son and that the former PSV Eindhoven ace is interested in a move to El Santiago Bernabeu.
“I know Real have made a bid to Chelsea for my son,” he told the Sun.
“When you are talking about Real Madrid, it has to be said that it’s one of the best clubs in the world.
“Who wouldn’t want to play for Real Madrid? My son wants to play at clubs that can win the Champions League and Real Madrid are one of the them.”
