Goodness me, this would be a coup for one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. United and Chelsea have been involved in a recent title race, as well as going toe-to-toe in an attempt to win the Champions League. According to Setanta, they could well be clashing horns by having a bidding war to try and land the signature of Robinho.
The Real Madrid forward has hinted that he may leave the Bernabeu in the summer and has revealed interest from the best two teams in England. Perhaps he can act as a makeweight when Cristiano Ronaldo finally decides to leave Manchester for Spain in the next few days.
Real Madrid star Robinho has revealed that he has been offered the chance to join both Chelsea and Manchester United.
The striker has told Brazilian reporters that he will leave El Santiago Bernabeu subject to a suitable offer being made by one of the Premier League giants.
There’s no doubt that the Blues need would be more pressing, especially if Deputy Drog is to leave as expected. While United have Rooney, Tevez and (if he stays) Ronaldo in their artillery, Chelsea will look desperately short, even if Anelka finds the form which has previously made him one of Europe’s most lethal marksmen.
