Robinho heading for Barcelona?

In case you don’t know already, Manchester City striker Robinho was today left out of Mark Hughes’ starting eleven who beat Portsmouth 1-0 at Fratton Park.

The Brazilian international has been strongly linked with a move to Spanish giants Barcelona this summer, however for whatever reasons nothing has materialised.

Robinho, 25, has previously insisted that he is happy to remain at Eastlands, however he did also admit that he would one day love to play for Barcelona.

Robinho signed for Manchester City this time last year for a British record £32 million. During his first season in the Premier League, he scored an impressive 14 goals and also scored a goal during City’s UEFA Cup campaign.

I would not be one bit surprised to see Robinho leave England before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday. It would be a real shame, however I think with all the new arrivals at City this summer, Robinho is now longer the only star at the club and I feel may growing a bit frustrated at that.
