"Robinho has a contract with Madrid, but I think it would be harmful if he stayed at the club and wasn't happy about it because it would be bad for his career," he said.

"He also has (World Cup) qualification to play with his national team and I think this would be very bad for Robinho.

"It's Robinho's opinion. He's made known his interest in leaving Madrid, but it's something the directors have to decide together with the player to find the best option for both.

"For me the best solution is for Madrid to be okay."
