Arjen Robben completes switch to Bayern

Arjen Robben has completed his transfer from Real Madrid to Bayern. The Netherlands international, who joins Germany’s most successful club from their Spanish counterparts for an undisclosed fee, passed a medical on Friday morning at the Säbener Strasse, before putting his name to a four-year contract keeping him in Munich until 30 June 2013.

At Bayern, the 25-year-old winger will be given the shirt number 10, last worn by his fellow-countryman Roy Makaay and not assigned since then. With the transfer formalities already completed, Robben will take part in Bayern’s final pre-match training session on Friday afternoon and is eligible to make his Munich debut in Saturday’s Bundesliga showdown against champions VfL Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.
