Roberto Mancini plans talks with want-away Robinho

Table of Contents
Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is planning a face-to-face showdown with Robinho before deciding the Brazilian's future.

Robinho has been on loan with Santos since January and has recently made comments which suggest he would prefer to remain in Brazil.

But it is unlikely to happen because Santos do not have the sort of money needed to buy the player that City bought from Real Madrid for £32.5 million for two years ago.

However, after Robinho has played in Brazil's friendly against the United States in New Jersey on Tuesday, Mancini will have a chat with the 26-year-old to decide what to do next.

The Italian said: "Robinho will stay in Brazil until the international game and then he will come back here because I need to speak with him.

"I worked with him for one month, then he decided to go back to Brazil. He said he wanted to stay at home so he could prepare to play for Brazil at the World Cup.

"There was no pressure from me but now I must speak with him because it is very difficult for him to stay at Santos."
