Robinho expected to join Chelsea and not Manchester City

Robinho is one of those players who had huge expectations of becoming a world-class footballer as he received recognition from Pele himself but after everything was said and done, the Brazilian player failed to live up to the initial hype.


On 2008, Manchester City suffered a transition in ownership as Sheikh Mansour became the new owner of the English Premier League club after offloading £210 million and his 1st major signing was Robinho who was lured in from Real Madrid for a transfer fee of £32.5 million.

However, the Brazilian player has recently stated that he was expecting to join Chelsea and that a deal was on the verge of being completed but the transfer eventually fell off and was never truly completed.

‘’My goal was to move to Chelsea and Big Phil Scolari said I could make the difference for him as his squad, according to him, was not creative enough but Real Madrid had fallen out with Chelsea they didn’t like them selling shirts with my name on before the deal had been done.

Robinho frustated after Salary not paid by his Club

Robinho, as some other Santos Footballers, is frustrated that his salary is not being paid by the club on a regular basis.

Robinho is the most expensive player that Santos has got right now. He is not a permanent part of the club though. He’s there on loan.

Santos has faced quite a few economic issues in the recent months. They have not been able to find a sponsor for the jersey of the senior team in the ongoing season. The empty stands during the matches have not helped them either.

Quite a few Peixe players have complained about their salaries remaining unpaid and a couple have even taken legal action against their employers.
