Pay as you go: Robinho must give up 2m to quit Manchester City for Santos

Robinho will have to take a pay cut of around £80,000-a-week to end his misery at Manchester City, who are refusing to fund his escape route to Brazil. City insist that if he leaves it will be on their terms, and have not ruled out the possibility of the unhappy forward having to stay in Manchester. Santos were hoping for an 18-month loan, with Roberto Mancini's club covering half his weekly wage of £160,000, the Brazilians paying about £45,000 and raising the other £35,000 through sponsorship. But City will not stump up, so Robinho will have to accept losing £2million in wages over the next six months to get his move. Pay as you go: Robinho must give up £2m in order to secure his return to Santos City's hard-line stance could also see them given first option on Santos's rising stars Neymar and playmaker Paulo Henrique Ganso as part of the deal.  Robinho to Santos almost a done deal as Neymar - the new Pele - is offered to Manchester City in returnManchester City star Adebayor returns to training for first time since bus attackTop of the flops!
