Roy Rudolphus Antonius Makaay (born March 9, 1975 in Wijchen, Netherlands) is a Dutch footballer who is a striker for the Netherlands and Feyenoord. While playing for Bayern Munich he picked up the nickname Das Phantom (the Phantom), for his ability to score out of nowhere.

His first encounter with Bayern Munich came during the UEFA Champions League 2002-03 season when he scored a hat-trick at the Olympiastadion in Munich in Deportivo's 3-2 win over the Bavarians. The Bayern bosses then kept a close eye on him through out the whole season and finally beat off stiff challenges from Manchester United and Chelsea to get their man. A club record fee of $20 million was paid to Deportivo La Coruña. He has since scored 78 Bundesliga and 17 UEFA Champions League goals during his four seasons at Bayern.

On August 21, 2006, Roy Makaay scored Bayern Munich's 3,000th Bundesliga goal. On March 31, 2007, he scored his 100th Bayern Munich's goal in the game against FC Schalke 04. It was his 75th Bundesliga goal and 100th competitive goal since joining Bayern Munich in 2003.

On 7 March 2007 Makaay scored the quickest goal in Champions League history, finding the net after just 10.2 seconds to help Bayern overturn a first-leg deficit and put Real Madrid out of the competition.

Makaay has returned to Holland for the 2007/08 season, when Feyenoord signed him to a 3-year deal with an unknown fee in June of 2007. Makaay's decision to leave was affected when Bayern Munich decided to sign forwards Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose.
