Agent: Robinho keen on Barca

The agent of Manchester City striker Robinho has suggested his client would love to sign for La Liga champions Barcelona.

The diminutive Brazil international spent much of last season on loan at Santos after his relationship with Citizens manager Roberto Mancini appeared to break down and Evandro de Souza has called for the Catalan giants to make a move.

Speaking to Spanish newspaper Sport, he said:"Any footballer in the world would love to play for a club like Barca.

"The relationship between Robinho and the board at Manchester City is very good, although it's true that there are some problems with the coach, Roberto Mancini.

"We have a meeting with City on the 16th (June). I will travel to Manchester with Gilvan de Souza (Robinho's father) and we will look at the situation with Robinho."
