News reports in the Spanish press are surfacing again that Manchester City star Robinho has set his sights on moving to Spain and joining the Barcelona squad. The 25-year-old former Real Madrid player is said to be extremely keen to make the trip back to Spain.

At the moment it seems unlikely that he will make City’s clash at the weekend with Arsenal due to an injury. The Brazilian native is quoted as saying that it would be “difficult for him” to be able to say “no” should a club “such as Barcelona” were to offer him a position.

He went on to say that he had always dreamed of playing for a club “like Barcelona” and that he has a love for Spain and that FC Barcelona are European champions and that Barcelona is a beautiful city.
