Arjen Robben's father and agent Hans, is still hopeful that a deal to take his son to Real Madrid will be concluded shortly.

Real are anxious to seal a move for the Dutch winger, but despite lengthy negotiations - terms have yet to be agreed.

A possible double deal including Michael Ballack was suggested over the weekend, which would have seemingly smoothed over the Robben deal too.

However, the joint move shows little signs of progressing and Robben snr is now just looking for a move to be sealed on Tuesday.

Hope for deal

"We hope that the agreement between Real Madrid and the Chelsea can be closed tomorrow [Tuesday]," Hans Robben told AS.

"Between now and Wednesday we think that everything can be solved.

"My son cannot make any sort of declaration or grant any interview until the agreement between Madrid and Chelsea is reached.

"His present club will not allow him to speak with the Spanish press until an agreement is reached.

"Chelsea is a club that protects its players."
