Posted on | September 2, 2008 | No Comments

Manchester City finally made an impact signing after failing to sign Ronaldinho from Barcelona and Berbatov from Tottenham.
Robinho was unsettled since Real‘s attempts on Manchester United star Cristiano Ronaldo. He was supposed to be used as an exchange player by Real Madrid.



However Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster always declared that he wants Robinho to stay and that he has his fully support.
Robinho remained on the leaving position even after Ronaldo‘s supposed transfer failed and he hoped that he will be taken by Chelsea which was also interested in him.
Chelsea have made an offer of only € 30 m which was refused by Real stating that no player will leave this summer.
City who was  taken over by a new investor, made an extravagant offer of € 42 m for the player and offered him a contract around 6m after tax.
This is the fourth-biggest transfer after Figo, Zidane and Shevcenko.
Real Madrid boss Ramon Calderon declared that Robinho‘s transfer is because of human reasons not because of sport and that Real would never keep a player in the team if that’s not what he wishes.
Manchester City boss mark Hughes is very delighted after the signing, considering Robinho one of the best players in the world and he declared that he can’t wait to introduce him into the squad and to the supporters.
