Alves welcomes Robinho transfer talk
Thursday 15 October 2009
Barcelona defender Dani Alves has welcomed reports linking Robinho with a possible move to the Camp Nou.
The Brazil star and former Real Madrid forward has been mentioned as a January target for the Catalan giants.
Robinho has struggled to perform consistently in the Premier League for Manchester City and Alves would welcome the chance to line up alongside his compatriot in La Liga.
"Robinho is a talented player and a great person," he said. "He is a player who would give us many different and wonderful things.
"If it's possible for him to come, I would welcome it."
