Man City dazzler Robinho: I've always wanted to play for Barcelona

Manchester City winger Robinho admits he's interested in a move to Barcelona. The Guardian says asked last night about Barcelona's interest, Robinho, who is on international duty, said: "It's not easy to say no to a club like Barcelona. They are European champions, they're in a lovely city and I like Spain a lot. I have always wanted to play at clubs like Barcelona.

"It's a great club, any player would be happy for them to show an interest. I'm happy that Barcelona have taken notice of me. Who wouldn't like to play alongside Xavi, [Andrés] Iniesta, [Lionel] Messi, [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic and all the rest. I like Barcelona; they're a great club."

Barcelona believe that City's manager, Mark Hughes, will be prepared to let Robinho go following a first season at Eastlands in which sparkling home performances were accompanied by dreadful away ones.
