This morning I saw this most incredible story that Robinho actually wants to stay at Man City for 5 to 10 years! One amazing thing is that he even uttered these sentiments in English. However much more astounding is how this is a significant change of heart relative to his previous desire to go to Barcelona only a few weeks ago.
So, what’s changed? Well Barcelona seem to be doing just fine without him, so he may have been told he’s not wanted. However, I reckon Man City have promised him a bit of a sweetener. That can’t be in the form of money cos he already has plenty of that, but what about a superstar world class player as a new teammate in the upcoming January window? Which one? I have no idea but anything is possible given the way Man City went after and nearly succeeded in getting Kaka a year ago.
So don’t be surprised if a new face is playing for City by the end of January. I suspect he won’t be a forward as Robinho’s joy of being at City would fast diminish if he was relegated to bench-warming.
