Chelsea paid PSV Eindhoven over 12m for Robben
Real Madrid remain certain they will sign Arjen Robben from Chelsea, despite reports that the Blues are keen to hold on to their Dutch winger.

The 23-year-old is believed to have agreed personal terms over a move to the Spanish Champions.

And Real boss Bernd Schuster told Spanish TV: "I think we'll succeed.

"It doesn't worry me when Arjen arrives - even if he's not here for the first Liga game. He's in pre-season training and won't have any physical problems."

The two clubs are yet to agree a fee and on Wednesday, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho stated he wanted Robben to stay at the club.

He said: "At the moment he is a Chelsea player with two more years of contract and he is working well.

"For me, he is a player like John Terry or Frank Lampard with two more years of contract."

However, Robben is due to fly to the Spanish capital on Friday.

And it is also believed Feyenoord's 20-year-old left winger Royston Drenthe has been lined up to replace Dutch international Robben for 7m.
