Football Rumours: Robinho not going to Chelsea

Football Rumours: Robinho not going to Chelsea

Bernabeu Stadium Real MadridIn a blow to the ego of Chelsea fans, Robinho is according to the latest football rumours going to snub Chelsea and stay at Real Madrid, providing they double his annual salary! Well, Well, money talks doesn't it, and not Chelsea's way all the time.

Given, this latest of football rumours may be one for the silly season, but it could also have a grain of truth in the crazy world of football, and it's sky-high salaries.

Madrid daily AS claims Robinho feels undervalued at the Bernabeu, where his contract does not compare with top earners like Raul, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Fabio Cannavaro.

Robinho would certainly earn more at Stamford Bridge, where he could expect wages of up to £100,000 a week. But the AS report also claims the Brazilian’s overwhelming preference is to remain at Madrid - with an improved contract.

The paper says Robinho has no enthusiasm for English football and has admitted his dislike for the British climate. And, if true, that would seem to fuel suspicions Robinho is simply using Chelsea’s interest to engineer a bigger contract from Madrid.

Well it's certainly the time of year for football rumours, though this one does seem to have a grain of truth about it, and Chelsea seem set to be foiled in their attempt to get their man. Seems Chelsea and Peter Kenyon have abandoned the break even in three years plan!
