Man City's Robinho a target for Barcelona
Spanish football correspondent Guillem Balague has hinted that Barcelona have tried to contact Manchester City to arrange a deal for Brazilian star Robinho. Writing in his blog for mirrorfootball.co.uk, Balague stated:
"Hughes and Guardiola had chatted at the Camp Nou before last week's friendly, and the Barcelona coach was told there was no chance of Robinho leaving.
"However, Guardiola found that Hughes' phone went unanswered - and sources at City now say that their transfer activity for this summer is over, but plans are already in place for further additions in January."
