Currently on £1.5 million-a-year, Robinho is seeking a clean £4 million-a-year to stay in Madrid. However, so far the Spanish champs have refused to go higher than £2.7 million-a-year.

If Real agree to his terms, Robinho is prepared to stay, despite the interest of Chelsea. But he remains undervalued by Real, particularly after learning this summer that teammates such as Royston Drenthe and Julio Baptista are earning near double his salary.
