City cool Robinho to Barca talk

13 Oct 2009 - 11:49:32

Manchester City are adamant that they will not be selling Robinho to Barcelona in January.

Last season's Champions League winners expressed their interest in Robinho earlier in the week when sporting director Txiki Beguiristain said they wanted to buy the Brazil international.

The former Real Madrid star has been struggling with an ankle injury for much of the season and has seen his replacement, Craig Bellamy, enjoy a purple patch.

However, City have no intention of letting any of their star names leave Eastlands when the transfer window reopens, with the Manchester Evening News quoting a source as saying: "There's been talk about us having a meeting with Barca in early December, but it's nonsense.

"So is all the stuff about the chairman Khaldoon al Mubarak telling Mark Hughes he has unlimited funds.

"Khaldoon said a few weeks ago that we'd crammed three years of spending into a couple of summer months, and that remains the case.

"Obviously you never say never and, if a player does become available in January who we feel will help our cause, we'll take a look at it."
