Robinho To Break Madrid Contract?
The Brazilian star, who moved to the Spanish capital club from Santos in 2005, still has two years left in his contract with the Merengues.
However, Robinho is understood to be unhappy at Santiago Bernabéu ever since Real Madrid considered him for a player-plus-clash deal for Manchester United’s in-demand Cristiano Ronaldo.
And Robinho, who is being courted by Chelsea new boss, Luiz Felipe Scolari, may well terminate his contract with Real Madrid without just clause under the Webster ruling.
According to Article 17 of FIFA’s transfer regulations, any player who signs a deal when aged under 28 is able to unilaterally break that contract after just three years.
Marca believes that, should Robinho terminate his contract with Real Madrid, a compensation of just EUR10 million will have to be paid to the club.
Earlier this summer, FC Porto midfielder Paulo Assunção decided to break his contract with the Portuguese Champions and he is now on the verge of completing a movetoAtletico Madrid.
Seems like Robinho wants to leave regradless of whether Real Madrid sign C.Ronaldo. I think Real Madrid have not done justice to Robinho, its partly Robinho’s fault too, he should have performed at least one season like C.Ronaldo did for the past two seasons if he wanted to be ranked among the top ranked players.
The frustrating thing is that Robinho has all the qualities to surpass C.Ronaldo or any other player, the only player I can think of who can match his potential and has probably a bit more is L.Messi.
