City Deny Robinho Exit

Manchester City have moved to quash reports in the Spanish press that record signing Robinho is set to join Barcelona on loan through an escape clause in his contract.

Garry Cook stated on Manchester City's official website: 'The story is completely without foundation. Robinho has always been a highly valued member of our team and that continues to be the case. Reports suggesting he will leave the football club, either on loan or on a permanent deal, are absolutely untrue.'

Earlier, Catalan television station TV3 had stated that an agreement between City and Barcelona could be reached in the next 24 hours, with the possibility of star striker Eto'o heading in the opposite direction.

The media are back to work undermining city and trying to destabilize the club. We are wise to it now and acting like a top club should. Onwards and upwards!

Spanish TV is it now? At least it's more credible then the Paraguayan Radio Station during the Winter transfer window... But clearly no closer to the truth.

Having heard Al Mubarak's remarks about the purchase of Robinho being a "statement" by our new owners, these Spain-spun rumours sound even more stupid. .
