Barca deny Robinho approach

21 October 2009 03:46
Barcelona have not approached Manchester City about forward Robinho since the summer, according to sporting director Txiki Begiristain. Hughes denied recent talk of a possible deal between the two teams for the Brazil star, saying he was "not in the process of taking outstanding players out of the team". Begiristain told www.elmundodeportivo.es: "Robinho is an interesting player who we asked about in the summer. But City would not talk about a transfer and since then we have not made any move." Robinho joined City in summer 2008 for £32.5million from Barca's arch rivals Real Madrid.
