Real Madrid will welcome Franck Ribery to the Santiago Bernabeu at the end of the season.

Following yesterday's reports that a verbal agreement of €50 million has been struck between Real and Bayern Munich for the Frenchman, German TV Sat 1's says a deal has been in place since August.

The deal was ironed out during negotiations over the sale of Arjen Robben to Bayern before the summer market closed.

Ribery will move to Real for €50-55 million at the end of this season.
