Robinho: Linked with a move away
Manchester City star Robinho is eager to meet new boss Roberto Mancini to hear his plans for moving the club forward.
The Brazilian had been persistently linked with a January move to Barcelona after an indifferent season under old boss Mark Hughes.
But the £32.5million signing from Real Madrid wants to hear what the former Inter Milan boss now has to say, believing there is still plenty of time for City to achieve success on the pitch this season.
Robinho told The Sun: "I want to talk with Mancini. I've heard good news about his work and City still have plenty of time to finish the season well.
"The decision for Hughes to go was down to the owners but it did not come as a surprise after all the rumours.
"But the Champions League zone is not so far for us and we are in the Carling Cup semi-finals.
"Performances have not been so negative as some people think."
Mancini is set to be officially unveiled at a press conference on Monday, following Hughes' departure on Saturday.
