Barca to rob Chelsea?

Published Add your comment

Barcelona could be set to table a shock bid for Chelsea target Robinho, according to the player´s agent Wagner Ribeiro.

Speculation has been rife that the Real Madrid forward is on his way to the Premier League, with Chelsea admitting their interest and Manchester United also linked. But reports in Spain suggest that Madrid´s bitter rivals Barca could be preparing a bid, with both club president Joan Laporta and coach Pep Guardiola in favour of the idea.

And Ribeiro insists the notion is not a surprise to him, telling Spanish sports daily El Mundo Deportivo: "It´s only logical that a club like Barcelona want Robinho."
