Robinho still keen on Barca switch

Manchester City star Robinho would welcome the chance to join Barcelona this summer, according to his representative.

Robinho joined Brazilian side Santos on a six-month loan deal in January after struggling to establish himself in Roberto Mancini's plans at Eastlands, and he has indicated he would like to make that switch permanent.

However, recent reports suggest City could look to offer Robinho in a swap deal with Barca striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who could be set to leave after a difficult first season at Camp Nou.

Robinho had been linked with a move to Barca in January, and late last year he said "playing in the Nou Camp it is much easier to be the best player in the world than at City". Representative Evandro de Souza has now confirmed that the Brazil attacker is still open to the move.

"Any player in the world would love to play at a club like Barca," he told Sport. "The stay at Santos was perfect for the World Cup. If you have a good tournament, it will open the doors of the big European clubs, including Barcelona."

De Souza revealed that Robinho has had a difficult relationship with Mancini and said City are now looking to offload the player.

"Robinho's relationship with the leaders of Manchester City is very good, although it is true there are some problems with coach Roberto Mancini.

"We have a meeting with City on the 16th. I will travel to Manchester with Gilvan de Souza (Robinho's father) and we will look at the situation with Robinho.

"We know that City are looking for a club for Robinho. There will be no quotes (from Robinho, at the moment). Robinho is focused on winning the World Cup and fighting for the Copa do Brasil (with Santos)."
