Chelsea are ready to make a new offer for Real Madrid winger Robinho.

The Sun says Chelsea will lodge a new £23million bid for Robinho, who has told Real Madrid: 'I must go'.

The Brazilian superstar is even ready to strike in a bid to engineer a move to Stamford Bridge.

His agent Wagner Ribeiro met Madrid officials yesterday. But president Ramon Calderon rejected the 24-year-old's plea, telling him he was a major part of their plans and that Chelsea must pay £30m if they want him.

Blues will only go up to £25m and hope to force through the move by early next week.

The Londoners are ready to pay Robinho £5.4m a year on a five-year deal.
