RUMOURED United target Arjen Robben has completed his move to Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
The Reds were linked with a late swoop for the former Chelsea man even though boss Sir Alex Ferguson has said he will make no more signings before the deadline on Tuesday.
Robben said Bayern had "given me a good feeling" from the moment they first signalled their interest in signing him.
"I feel very welcome here," he told the club's website.
"This is a big club with a great history and I am delighted to be here now."
Robben's chances of being a regular in Real's star-studded side appeared to have reduced when Cristiano Ronaldo and Kaka were both signed this summer, but the former Chelsea winger still seemed keen on giving it a go.
That was until Bayern firmed up their interest and offered him the opportunity to play on a more regular basis.
"Everything went so quickly," he revealed. "There were a few things that I had to consider and in the end I decided that I would like to transfer to a big club like FC Bayern."
