City in talks to offload Robinho

Manchester City are reported to be in negotiations with two separate clubs over a £20m deal for British record signing Robinho.

The Brazil international spent the last six months on loan at Santos but it appears that City manager Roberto Mancini has no place for the 26-year-old in his long-term plans.

Robinho has made it clear that he wants to leave Eastlands and City are reported to be open for offers for the mercurial talent.

Besiktas and Schalke were both rumoured to be interested in signing the former Real Madrid player earlier this summer but its not clear if they are the two clubs currently in talks with City over a possible deal.

Robinho joined City two years ago for £32.5m but has failed to deliver on the pitch. After impressing at the World Cup in South Africa the Abu Dhabi Group are hoping to recoup a big chunk of the player’s original transfer fee.
