Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola has rejected the chance to sign Manchester City winger Robinho.

After failing to prise Cesc Fabregas away from Arsenal, Barca directors went to Guardiola with the idea of buying Robinho.

Sport says Guardiola rejected the prospect immediately.

The Barca coach was aware of Robinho's problems at City and refused to gamble with his squad's harmony by adding the Brazilian's personality to the mix.
