Robinho's proposed move to Santos could yet be scuppered after one of the youngsters involved in the deal admitted he did not want to join Manchester City.
Santos confirmed that the transfer was 98 per cent done on Tuesday, with City agreeing to have first option on promising Santos duo Neymar and Paulo Henrique.
However Henrique, who was linked with Chelsea in December, has now admitted that he has no interest in joining City.
"I don't want to play for Manchester City," he said.
"I'd prefer to play for a big club in Europe such as Milan, Real Madrid or Barcelona'
