Robinho is set to leave Manchester City, it has been revealed.

The Sun says manager Roberto Mancini has run out of patience and told the £32.5million flop he is no longer in his plans.

And while the Brazilian will play at Scunthorpe in the FA Cup fourth round tomorrow, it is so Mancini's favoured players can have a rest.

Despite 15 goals last season, some of Robinho's away displays were awful and he has slipped out of favour.

City are in talks with Barcelona and Brazilian side Santos as they try to offload the striker, who turns 26 on Monday.
