Robinho determined to join Chelsea

Real Madrid's Brazilian striker Robinho said Sunday that his “head was at Chelsea” and that he was determined to leave the Spanish club despite efforts of team bosses to keep him.

“I've already told the president (Ramon Calderon), and coach (Bernd Schuster), management and (the media): my head is there (at Chelsea), I want to play over there,” the 24-year-old said.

“Until now I've never had a problem in the locker room (at Real),” he added.

Robinho, who joined Real in 2005, attacked the Spanish champions for their attitude to him during the summer when his father and agent had been trying to negotiate a new contract for him.

“The club showed little interest in keeping me,” said Robinho of Real who focused their efforts on their failed bid to sign Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

“The problem is that (Real Madrid) did not manage to recruit.

“Schuster isn't my father, he's my coach. He can't make me do anything.”

Real also recently failed in their bid to sign two Spanish internationals Santi Cazorla from Villarreal and David Villa from Valencia.

“I want to leave, nothing more,” he added.

There is very little time left for Robinho to move to London with the transfer window officially closing at midnight on Monday.

Robinho has finally moved to Mancity against his wish. This has clearly shown that money speaks more.
Mancity should know that money can buy you a world class player but money cant make a world class player play his best. e.g the case of Shevchenko being dragged by his wife to England.
They will learn.
