Mancini set to let Robinho move on

After spending the latter part of last season on loan at his beloved Santos, it was widely thought that Manchester City’s Brazilian winger Robinho would be given a second chance by Roberto Mancini.

Mancini has fuelled speculation that City are willing to sell Robinho, but only if the fee is right by declaring that his future will be ‘sorted out in the next few days’.

News has been circulating that a number of clubs, including Fenebache, Schalke 04 and Besiktas, are looking to take the former Real Madrid man on a season long loan.

Robinho’s has always said his first choice would be to re-sign for Santos, the club he joined as a kid and made his debut for at 18, but the size of the transfer fee would be the club’s major obstacle.

Barcelona have also been thrown into the frame but it’s more likely that they will be off-loading players before the window closes rather than bringing them in. A move to Germany or Turkey is not thought to appeal to the 26 year-old winger.

Other player’s could also be on the way with Shay Given and Roque Santa Cruz not happy at their first team situation, and Mancini is very keen to cut the size of Manchester City’s ever inflating wage bill before the transfer window closes.
