Man City winger Robinho must drop £80,000-a-week to make Santos move

Manchester City winger Robinho will have to take a massive pay-cut to get his return to Santos.

Manchester City winger Robinho will have to take a massive pay-cut to get his return to Santos.

The Daily Mail says Robinho will have to take a pay cut of around £80,000-a-week to end his misery at City.

City insist that if he leaves it will be on their terms, and have not ruled out the possibility of the unhappy forward having to stay in Manchester.

Santos were hoping for an 18-month loan, with Roberto Mancini’s club covering half his weekly wage of £160,000, the Brazilians paying about £45,000 and raising the other £35,000 through sponsorship. But City will not stump up, so Robinho will have to accept losing £2million in wages over the next six months to get his move.
