Manchester City are ready to sell Robinho.

The Mirror says Robinho will be told he can leave Manchester City in today's D-Day talks over his future.

Robinho's agent Evandro de Souza and his dad Gilvan de Souva are due to meet City's hierarchy to discuss the £32.5million striker's next move and the Blues will not stand in his way if he wants to go.

The Brazilian World Cup star's loan agreement with Santos ends in August and City are prepared to negotiate a permanent move.

The Blues are ready to take a hit over the former Real Madrid star, who was Sheikh Mansour's first big signing when he bought the club two years ago.

Besiktas, managed by ex-Real coach Bernd Schuster, are keen on Robinho, while Santos would like to keep him, and City may have to fund part of his massive £160,000-a-week salary to get him off their books.
