The Blues have chased the Real Madrid ace's signature all summer and Phil Scolari is desperate to add him to his star-studded squad.

But Madrid's refusal to discuss a deal means Robinho, 24, faces at least another season at the Bernabeu.

Robinho's representative Wagner Ribeiro said: "The dream of Chelsea is broken because Real Madrid will not even negotiate.

"It is impossible to advance any conversation.

"Next summer we will sort out the situation if people can show some sense."
