Robinho has urged Manchester City to launch a bid for Argentina star Carlos Tevez.
Tevez's future is uncertain as he nears the end of a two-year loan agreement at Manchester United.
City have been linked with a bid for the bullish forward, although the Red Devils appear keen to strike fresh terms with Tevez's representatives, with Cristiano Ronaldo set for Real Madrid.
Brazilian attacker Robinho is keen to play alongside Tevez at Eastlands and is hopeful the affluent club could land his services this summer.
Robinho said in The Sun: "We would definitely complement City's attack. I hope my club make a move for him.
"It would be a pleasure to play with Carlos. He is one of the best players in the world and it is a shame he is not having more opportunities at his current club.
"If he leaves United - as I have been reading in the last few days - and if the interest of City gets confirmed, of course I will try to convince him to join us.
"I am sure we would make a fiercesome duo up front. He is so fast and combative with great technique."
He added: "If Carlos comes to City, and if the club manages to get two or three players of the same quality we can aspire to big things.
"This season was not our best, but this was also our first year together and I don't regret the option I made a year ago. In the coming season fans can definitely expect to see us in the top spots of the league."
