Schuster confident Chelsea target Robinho will stay with Real Madrid

Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster is adamant that Chelsea target Robinho is staying in Spain.

"Right now I'm sure that Robinho will stay," said Schuster. "For me it is not a problem and I'm not going to worry about it because he is going to be our player. It is not a concern."

The German coach, who was speaking after including the former Santos ace in his 18-man squad for the trip to Valencia, added: "At no point has Robinho given the impression that he does not want to go (to Valencia).

"He is very well. I have spoken with him and the player is in perfect shape.

"He is training normally, is here to play and therefore he is going to play.

"I can only assess what Robinho does here, and with us everything is normal. In the games he has played in pre-season he has done very well, played with a lot of joy, and it's the same in training," added Schuster, echoing comments he made before Tuesday's friendly against Eintracht Frankfurt.

"I have to say that I haven't seen any change in his attitude."
