Robinho is D-U-N, done!By: Steve | August 22nd, 2008
Hala Madrid! Well, Madridistas, it looks like Robinho is definitely on the way out. The Brazilian has finally spoken out publicly, declaring his love for all things Roman (pun intended). I can hardly see a way that we keep him now, though his lack of form through the preseason has made his possible departure all the more bearable.
Presidente Calderon has put a £32m (40m euros) price tag on Robinho’s head at which he’d allow the Chelskis to get the winger, and word on the street is that Blues head honcho Peter Kenyon is in Madrid as I type to iron out the transfer. Will Calderon get back the 36m euros he spent on Robben a year ago? Of course, you knew this was going to happen once I got my Robinho jersey… damn it! Sorry, my bad.
In other news, I’m going to Spain on holidays next week, starting in Sevilla on Sunday… so I obviously won’t be liveblogging the second leg of the Supercopa. Instead, I’ll be in some random tapas bar, watching the match and trying not to get killed. Wish me luck!
