Real Madrid have completed the signing of 23-year-old Ajax midfielder Wesley Sneijder for £18.3m.
Sneijder played for Holland at last year's World Cup
The Holland international, who has been capped 35 times, has signed a five-year deal with the Spanish champions.
Sneijder will be unveiled later on Monday alongside compatriot Royston Drenthe, who completed a reported £9.5m move from Feyenoord on Monday.
The signing of Sneijder could have implications for Chelsea's Arjen Robben, who has been linked with Real.
Winger Robben, another Dutchman, is reported to be keen on the move to Spain but the two clubs are thought to be at odds over the fee.
Real may still pursue their interest in Robben because, although Sneijder can play on the wing, he is more of a midfield playmaker in the mould of Michael Ballack.
