Robinho to leave Man city in summer

Manchester City are ready to sell Robinho at the end of the season, it has been revealed

The Daily Mail says according to sources close to City’s Arab owners in the Middle East, the Barclays Premier League club will cut their losses on England’s best-paid player if they receive an acceptable offer.

It is understood that City’s owners, the Abu Dhabi United Group, are aware of the fact that, despite occasional moments of brilliance, Robinho has not proved the consummate success they hoped when they bought him for £32.5million from Real Madrid on the last day of the August transfer window.

Robinho’s away form has been poor and he is becoming a negative influence on other members of Mark Hughes’s squad along with his fellow Brazilian Elano.

The City manager is not actively trying to push Robinho out but is aware that the club are likely to receive offers in the summer as the 25-year-old has made it clear he is not happy at Eastlands.
