Madrid, July 18 (Xinhua) The agent of Brazilian winger Robinho has said the player has no intention of leaving his club Real Madrid despite being approached by several big European sides. Speaking to the Barcelona-based newspaper “El Mundo Deportivo,” Wagner Ribeiro ended speculations of Robinho looking for a way out from Real Madrid to English Premiership side Chelsea.

Chelsea is rumoured to have offered a huge amount to the player and is aware that it would struggle to hold its top place with Real Madrid should the Spanish side eventually sign Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

Events have moved on this week with FC Barcelona also interested in taking Robinho away from their main rivals, something that Ribeiro did not deny.

“It is logical that a club such as Barcelona wants Robinho. Chelsea and Manchester United also want him and Chelsea have put in a big offer to Real Madrid for Robinho, but it looks as if the club does not want to sell him,” Ribeiro told El Mundo Deportivo.

“Robinho has got a contract with Real Madrid and for that reason he is not looking to leave the club,” insisted the agent.
