Robinho has urged Brazil teammate Kaka to join him at Manchester City.

"He is a great player and a great person," Robinho said of the AC Milan star. "Kaká is fantastic and has so much ability. He is strong, intelligent and fast. I hope I can play with him here. If Kaká or any other great player wants to come here, the door is open.

"It's great when we have players like that mentioned with the club. We love it, and the ambition of the owners. All the players are hoping to make this club the best in the world."

Robinho went on to argue that the club could grow to be as large as his former team Real Madrid, while setting himself a target of 30 goals for his first season in England.

"I came to Manchester City because I see them growing and getting bigger. Can they be as big as Real Madrid? Yes, I hope so," Robinho said in an interview with Abu Dhabi newspaper The National.

"I hope to play here for many years. I hope to make history at the club and become one of the great heroes of Manchester City. There is a long way to go in this championship and hopefully I can score more and better things will come."
