Manchester City hope to offload Robinho this week.

The Sunday Mirror says City will meet Fenerbahce officials this week in a bid to dump Brazilian flop Robinho.

City are desperate to find a buyer for the £32.5million British-record signing after refusing approaches from Barcelona, Lyon and Santos to take Robinho on loan.

They want £26m for the 26-year-old, who spent eight months back at his former club Santos on loan before returning to Eastlands earlier this month.

The only cash offer is from Besiktas, who are willing to pay £16m up front with another £10m in add-ons.

But they need a sponsor to fund the transfer fee and Robinho’s £160,000-a-week wages. Fenerbahce believe they have gazumped their rivals and arranged talks with City chief Garry Cook.
