Another Robinho rumour?

CHELSEA will sign Manchester City star Robinho at the end of the season and finance the move with the sale of Didier Drogba.

Blues boss Luiz Felipe Scolari has made it clear the London club MUST buy the Manchester City star. There was even a chance a deal could have been struck before the end of the January transfer window but that was torpedoed by City boss Mark Hughes.

A plan which would have seen Drogba go to Eastlands for £27million was hatched with City paying three instalments of £9m for the Ivory Coast striker. That would have seen Chelsea pay just £6m to bring Robinho to the Bridge. But the swap floundered after Hughes insisted he wanted Blackburn’s Roque Santa Cruz rather than Drogba.

But there are doubts over whether Hughes will still be in charge in the summer which would clear the way for the deal.

A well-placed source said: “It is all very complicated and there’s a lot of people involved. Some things could get ugly but Robinho will end up a Chelsea player in the summer.â€

Chelsea will sell Drogba and expect to get at least £20m for him which would allow them to buy Robinho while staying within the financial guidelines laid down by owner Roman Abramovich.

The Russian has ordered an end to Chelsea’s lavish spending but will sanction a move for the Brazilian. He withdrew from negotiations last year when City made it clear they wanted Robinho as a statement signing.

Sources close to Robinho claim he ‘regrets’ joining City and we understand third parties are already working on an exit deal which may even see Robinho accept some from of wage ‘cut’ on his £160,000 a week salary to comply with Chelsea’s new structure. But his pay would be bolstered with an improved image rights deal.

If there is any truth in this, then it simply reinforces the theory that Scolari is a one trick pony who only knows one way to play, who needs the players to fit into his preferred system of play, and who is incapable of adapting a system to suit the players he actually has available.

Did I say theory?

Do you honestly believe Robinho would want to play for Chelsea after that load of sh*te against the Dippers???

Who's saying Scolari will be in charge to sign him anyway!!!

He's better off staying where he is i'm afraid...........

Not scolaris fault today. He's doing the best he can with the resources. Ideally we need to bring in two wide players and sumone like Santa Cruz to play up top.Essien would give us the urgency we needed in midfield while the wide men would allow us to exploit teams the way duff and robben used to. I don't think robinho is what we need. He always wants to come infield aswell. The side is badly in need of heavy investment. Zhirkov/ Arshavin/ Ashley Young/Schweinsteiger. Drogba,Kalou,Malouda all need to go and maybe deco too

You're making it sound like he was put in charge of Sc**thorpe. Even with all the problems we've got this squad is still one of the best and most expensive in Europe, in premiership only mancs are arguably better.

I'm not expecting Scolari to win anything and would be willing to give him time but he has done nothing and i mean, NOTHING to date to justify the notion that he can take this club anywhere but down.

By all accounts, Robinho was absolutely bloody awful today - strolling around showing no interest whatsoever in the game. I'm wondering whether Scolari's dismissal had anything to do with this. How so? Well put it this way. He must have woken up by now and realised he won't win anything with Man City, but was very probably consoled by the hoping of moving to Stamford Bridge, playing for Scolari next season. And now Scolari's gone, the possibilities of that happening are hopefully even more remote.

And that's the good news. Because if I've heard correctly, there is no way in this world I'd ever want to see Robinho in a Chelsea shirt.

Got to agree Lofty. He's shown that on his day he can live up to his hype, but his behaviour at City has also confirmed that he has a pretty f**king dreadful attitude to go with his ability, and I just don't want players like that at the club, however good they may be.

Also, your theory does actually make a lot of sense, and I wouldn't be surprised if he is now sh*tting his pants at how on earth he is going to get away from City unless something changes pretty damn soon. He will want a new manager as soon as possible, that's for sure.

Its a safe bet Robinho has a sackful of escape clauses in that contract (just as Kaka wouldve), and if they fail to qualify for Europe this season , its another safe bet he will throw another episode and be offski.

Though now we dont have Scolari, it wont be us he joins.

I'd much rather take a punt at getting Quaresma full time and give them Drogba in return as he is ageing. He will cost alot less than Robinho im sure and also Robinho wouldn't want to come here without Scolari in charge in my opinion.

It seems he's fallen out with Mark Hughes, and his recent performances have got him dropped. Is there anyone else that still thinks this guy could do the job for Chelsea? And that, should he be made available for the right price, we should go in for him?

A lot of 'ifs' would of course be involved, but I'm curious to what you guys think about the possibility?

whatever happens in the summer, we need to improve the players around drogba without a doubt, and robinho would be a massive improvement over kalou or malouda. I'd still take him, but certainly not for more than city have paid. his attitude has been pretty poor and his season has been up and down, but in fairness it is his first and I would expect him to do better next year.
