Barcelona are going cold on their plans to prise Robinho away from Manchester City.

The Sunday Times says Barca are exploring the prospect of landing David Silva from cash-strapped Valencia, which would end their pursuit of Robinho.

While City's owners rejected a bid for their record signing in August, Barca have begun exploring other options to replace Henry on the left side of their attack. Silva would be a cheaper option with his asking price of around £25m and an easier fit in the side.
