Chelsea will contact Fifa
to investigate Real Madrid over a possible illegal approach for Arjen
. The Dutch winger had been named by new Real president Ramon Calderon as one of the players that had already
agreed terms on a move to Madrid. Calderon insists that Real’s new sporting director, Predrag
Mijatovic, has talked with Roman Abramovich. For their part, Chelsea insist that Robben is not for sale, but now chief executive Peter Kenyon has confirmed that they will take the matter up with Fifa. Tell-tales.

Bit rich coming from the club that was fined £300,000 for tapping up Ashley Cole, don’t you think?

    bit rich? possibly, but then again Arsenal have been fined for tapping up players in the past as well, but I am sure it is ok for them to then accuse chelsea isn’t it?
    short-sighted double standards.
