Just What Chelsea Need, A Diving Partner for Drogba: Robinho
According to a report in the BBC, Chelsea are interested in signing Real Madrid's Brazilian forward Robinho - but there is some debate as to whether or not Stamford Bridge have ponied up the £48 million purse.
The BBC goes on to report that Robinho is on Big Phil's list of target players but the 24 year old's price tag is up for debate. Regarding the potential move, Robinho said "it would be a dream for me to work with Luiz Felipe Scolari, who is one of the best coaches in the world."
Much like Drogba, I love watching Robinho play when he's in the mood for honest football, but the second he starts collapsing to the turf at the slightest brush, I start looking for someone to go Roy Keane on him. Sorry - but I can't stand divers in the game and in my mind, Robinho is up their with the worst. Maybe a good dose of Premiership football would help the diminutive forward out of his flopping ways.
