Robinho 'happy' about Barca interest

Brazil star Robinho believes his ambition to be the best player in the world would be better served playing for Barcelona than Manchester City.

However the Samba sizzler insists he is not trying to force a move away from the ambitious Eastlands outfit.

Robinho, who only joined City just over a year ago for a British record £32.5million from Real Madrid, has been closely linked with a move back to Spain over the last few months – with Barca confirmed admirers.

The Brazil international has already admitted he would relish the chance to play for Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering side, and, in his latest comments, he also feels that by representing Barca he will have a better chance of achieving his long-held goal of being the best player on the planet.

Robinho told Brazilian radio station Radio Bandeirantes: “I’m very happy about the interest that Barcelona have in me, playing in the Nou Camp it is much easier to be the best player in the world than at City.”

However Robinho, who is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, insists he is not trying to manufacture a move away from City or that he has a problem with manager Mark Hughes.

“I’m not forcing a hypothetical exit from England and neither do I have problems with my coach,” he added.

    Moving to barca could be a good idea as far as you play soccer but you have to consider your relationship wih the current team and if it is good dont leave and if you are happy with the wages stay but if your interest is to be a player of the year and you think playing for barca will earn you your goal so GO FOR IT i for 1 will be pleased to see you there playing with the magician Messy and you off-course the maker of the ball and the owner.
