Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini insists Robinho can still have a future at Eastlands.

Robinho is expected to join his former club Santos on-loan to the end of the season this week.

"I haven't given up on Robinho," said Mancini. "If he goes back to Brazil, plays well and goes to the World Cup, he can come back here.

"Adriano had some problems in Milan but he went to another club for six months, played well and changed the situation."
