Arsenal, Spurs thwarted in bid for Real Madrid's Robinho

Arsenal and Tottenham are interested in Real Madrid wing ace Robinho.

Real sports chief Pedja Mijatovic was eager to offload Robinho after several incidents of ill-discipline and off-the-field controversy, however the winger's recent form has convinced management to hold onto the former Santos star.
