Alves urges Robinho to join Barcelona

Robinho joined Manchester City this summer from Real Madrid but has been linked with a move away from the Premier League.

“The ones who have money and can allow those luxuries, they do it. That is them,” Marca quote him as saying.

“At Barcelona we are not worried because we are the ones who are going to be defending our titles and it is normal that others strengthen so they can try and win.

“If I could recommend players, I would ask that they hired all the players here in the national team. As that is not possible, I think a player that would fit perfectly into our team would be Robinho.

“But we don’t have to worry about that. Our team is doing very well, we are the champions of Europe.”
