Robinho: It would be great to have Alves at Real Madrid

Robinho said: “Alves is a great player and fine person. His signing is a subject for the board, but if he joined Madrid he would help us a lot.

“I do not know how much he would cost, but is a superb player.

“At Real Madrid we have Sergio Ramos, who is playing well, and Michel Salgado, who is very good, and we are strong on the right.”
