Barcelona have rubbished claims that they have expressed an interest in signing Robinho.
Following the sale of Ronaldinho to Milan it has been reported that Barca are keen to sign a big-name player, but they have denied that Robinho is in the frame.
“Every player on the market is of interest to us, but Robinho is not on the market so there is nothing more to say,” Barca director Rafael Yuste confirmed to Sport.
Another factor that would make a move for the Brazilian unlikely, is an unwritten agreement between the two clubs that prevents either club signing a player from their rivals.
When Ramon Calderon took over as president at Real Madrid, he and Barca president Joan Laporta decided that they would make approaches for each others players and to deny any stories that do the same.
