Arbeloa set to join Real Madrid for £3.5m

Liverpool fullback Alvaro Arbeloa has passed a medical at the Bernabeu and looks set to complete a transfer to Real Madrid for a fee of £3.5m

Real's chief medical officer Carlos Diez spoke about the transfer on the club's website: "He has undergone a standard examination and the results of all the tests are very satisfactory. He is delighted to be able to play for Real Madrid, which has been his lifelong dream. He's looking forward to joining his team-mates."

Arbeloa enjoyed an unsuccessful two-year period at Anfield becoming a target for a large section of Liverpool fans. However, the Spanish international is now set to become Real Madrid's sixth signing of the summer after Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema, Raul Albiol, Alvaro Negredo and Esteban Granero.
