Brazilian international would not be averse to an Eastlands return.
Robinho has refused to rule out the prospect of returning to Manchester City after the World Cup finals.
The Samba star is currently in South Africa with Brazil, where he is hoping to help the South Americans to a sixth world crown.
Robinho has since expressed a desire to secure a permanent return to his roots, while he has also hinted that he could be tempted to link up with his former Real Madrid boss Bernd Schuster at Turkish outfit Besiktas.
However, the 26-year-old has now revealed that he could be prepared to have a second shot at the Premier League, with there no guarantee that he will be offloaded by Blues boss Robert Mancini this summer.
“I honestly don’t know what will happen at City. We will just see what happens over the summer but I haven’t ruled out a return,” he said in the Daily Star.
“First things first. The only thing on my mind now is helping the Brazilian team to win the World Cup.
“But I thought Manchester City were a good choice for me. I understood the reactions when I joined them. People thought I was going for the money but if it was then I would have gone to Dubai or an Arabic country.
“But I wanted to play in the Premier League and I was happy to join a club with big ambitions.
“They have the money and ambition to make it into the top four in England. And, believe me, next season City will. Maybe I’ll be there to help them.
“When I moved to City a lot of Brazilians did not really know much about the club and they thought it was a step down. But I’m now thinking that people think it was the right decision for me.” (Sky Sports)
No one can deny Robinho’s ability on the football field. His inability to consistently perform can however be very frustrating indeed. That said the Brazilian could still surely offer Roberto Mancini something that could be of worth.
The Italian may not rate the 26 year old attacker but its worth remembering the manner in which the former Real Madrid eased into Premier League life during that terrific first season at Eastlands where Robinho managed to wow the crowds on a regular basis.
Clearly the club has a number of attacking options and whilst Carlos Tevez and Emmanuel Adebayor appear to be Mancini’s first choice pairing surely there is some scope for the Samba star to be considered, perhaps in a wide role? What do Man City fans think?
