United plans to bring Arjen Robben

Manchester United will launch a deadline bid to sign Arjen Robben from Real Madrid.

United have been quoted £26 million but The Red Devils plan to force the price down this weekend. Old Trafford chiefs says that an offer of £15 million will be enough to attract Robben.

Arjen Robben, 26, is seen as the creative spark, which can help fill the void left by £80 million Cristiano Ronaldo. The Dutchman has been in sparkling form for Real in pre-season. But he is unlikely to get a look-in at the Bernabeu.

Robben came close to signing for Alex Ferguson's men in 2004, when he was visiting United training ground with his team PSV. But he opted for a £12 million move to Chelsea. The Blues doubled their money by flogging him to Madrid in 2007.
