Manchester City land Robinho
Manchester CityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new owners Abu Dhabi United have instantly won the clubÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s supporters over by completing the signing of Brazilian superstar Robinho.
The versatile attacker joins for a British record transfer fee of Ã‚Â£32.5million from Real Madrid, having played 101 games and scoring 25 goals for the Bernabeu club.
The 24-year-old had been widely tipped to join Chelsea this summer, but makes the move to Manchester after a remarkable day of activity at Eastlands.
On the day of their takeover, Manchester City confirmed bids for a quartet of players on transfer deadline day. As well as Robinho, the club offered Ã‚Â£30m for TottenhamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Dimitar Berbatov and also made moves for ValenciaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s David Villa and StuttgartÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mario Gomez.
Sky Sports News reported that Manchester City could have made bids for as many as six different players on the 1st September.
