Dutch winger Arjen Robben has completed his transfer from Real Madrid to Bayern Munich for an undisclosed fee, signing a four-year contract at the Allianz Arena. The 25-year-old had been with the Spanish giants for two seasons, but has been allowed to move on by new coach Manuel Pellegrini following the arrivals of the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka. Robben told his new club's official website: "It all happened very fast. "There were a couple of things I wanted to think over, but in the end I decided I really wanted to move to a huge club like Bayern. "Right from the start, Bayern gave me a very good feeling, and I feel very welcome here. "This is a massive club with a glorious history and I'm delighted to be here now. "I'm totally fit, I had a good pre-season with Real Madrid and I'm ready to play."
