Robinho is keen to meet with new Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, according to a report in The Sun.
The Brazil forward has blown hot and cold for City this season with results so far this season not considered good enough by the club's wealthy backers to keep Mark Hughes in a job, with his dismissal being confirmed on Saturday evening.
Robinho, who has been linked with a January move to Barcelona, is quoted in The Sun as saying: "I want to talk with Mancini. I've heard good news about his work and City still have plenty of time to finish the season well."
He added: "The decision for Hughes to go was down to the owners but it did not come as a surprise after all the rumours.
"But the Champions League zone is not so far for us and we are in the Carling Cup semi-finals. Performances have not been so negative as some people think."
