It seems that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson are about to fall out over the whole on/off saga to sign Dimitar Berbatov, so now it appears that the Old Trafford club may be looking elsewhere at another hugely exciting signing!
Robinho’s agent Wagner Ribeiro claims: “It’s only logical that a club like Barcelona want Robinho. He is also wanted by Chelsea and Manchester United…” (football365.com)
Wagner Ribeiro admits it would be difficult to secure a move to Stamford Bridge or Barcelona, whom he also claims are interested in his client, despite the Catalan club’s strenuous denial of any contact.

Chelsea’s move for the Brazilian appears to have come to nothing but reports are suggesting that Robinho will still more than likely be leaving the Bernabeu for pastures new. Given the palaver surrounding the planned signing of the Bulgarian ace the Man United boss may opt to give up on the Spurs man and put his efforts into landing the Real man. Of course the huge sticking point could be relations between the two clubs following the Spanish champions attempts to unsettle Cristiano Ronaldo but who knows where the Portuguese man’s future lies, could he really return to the Premier League champions? Would United fans rather let Ronaldo leave than see him line up for a club he has treated so badly? Does the idea of signing the Brazilian flair player excite the fans?
