Robinho Offloaded - More Details

MCFC has confirmed that the transfer of De Souza Robinho has gone through with AC Milan. The record British transfer who arrived with a bang goes out with a whimper...

...but don't put it past him to be slagging City and the two managers he repeatedly chanced it with very soon.

We are hearing reports that City held out for a £22 million fee off Silvio Berlusconi and got it in a bid to recoup as much as possible of the £32.5 million The Blues paid Real Madrid for their wantaway striker two years ago to the day.

Many Blues didn't want City to do business with the Italian Dracula after he used 'Kakagate' to his own ends last year, but needs must and Robinho had made it very clear that he doesn't want to play in England anymore.

Brilliantly talented but found out to be lightweight, as the Premier League pitches and tackles became heavier, so Robinho caved in and his talent went with him.

It could have been beautiful, but in the end our Number 10 wasn't up for the fight and his heart wasn't in it.

Robinho made 48 League and Cup appearances for The Citizens and scored 15 goals. He is the 15th player to leave Manchester City this summer.

In other news, 21 year old Adam Clayton has left The Blues permanently for Leeds United.

I am so happy that this biggest sulk that City has had on their books for a few seasons is gone, he is far worse than Anelka used to be. At least Anelka could play away from home.

His worst moment IMHO was when he crapped on Hughes and full the squad for that bowling night for those poor kids. The tosser didn't show and had to be gone out and fetched there towards the end of the night by embarrassed club officials.

still have Jo though CM51, can't believe that no-one came in for this obvious talent. I think Jo does not have to be named, in the 25 as we have had him as a teenager but dont have a clue how old he is.
