Robinho Deal Expected Within 48 Hours

Robinho Deal Expected Within 48 Hours


Manchester City's £32million flop, Robinho has told Brazilian TV station Globo that he has played his last game for the Citizens.

UK based Talk Sport radio South American football commentator, Tim Vickery has also confirmed the above and states that the 26-year-old has had enough of Manchester and that a loan deal with his former club, Santos is 90 per cent done.

The Brazil international was also quoted by Radio Bandeirantes over the weekend as saying that he was set to leave City because he would not be guaranteed regular football by Roberto Mancini in a World Cup year.

City boss, Roberto Mancini said on ITV1 following the clubs 4-2 FA Cup win over Championship side Scunthorpe United yesterday that he hoped the Brazilian star would remain at Eastlands.

Robinho has not lived up to expectations and is quickly becoming a joke, especially with the opposition fans. Perhaps it really is the time for the 5'8' forward to call it a day and return to his native country.

Its the best outcome for city, thats the main thing. Whether robinho performs well with whoever - who cares! He was a £30million pound billboard to the world to show sheikh mansour meant buiness. A shame the lad didnt perform. Mancini must have a winger lined up, id like krasic, victor moses or silva.

Robinho seams to me to be the kind of player which City don't need... He's a great player when he wants to be... The rest he's just average.. (as far as Prem standard goes)

Letting someone of Robinho's quality go out on loan is madness. Forget what the player wants we should be thinking what's best for us. If he throws a hissy fit have him train with the youth team till the summer then sell him. If he knuckles down then brilliant because the boy can be class on his day. It's not like we need the money or can't afford to pay him not to play.
