Brazilian starlet Robinhp says he is prepared to give up his share of a mutli-million pound transfer fee in order to secure his move from Santos to Real Madrid.
Robinho is still refusing to train with Santos in protest at the Brazilian club’s refusal to accept Real Madrid’s bid for the 21-year-old Brazilian international.
Robinho is now reported to have said that he is willing to waive the estimated 7 million euros (£5m) which would be due to him as a signing-on fee.
“If I have to give up what’s due to me to play in Real Madrid that’s no problem,” he told Brazilian radio. “I’m young and have all my career ahead of me.”
The player’s agent Wagner Ribeiro added: “Robinho wants to be freed so much that he said that. It’s a sign of desperation. I’ve spoken to him and he wants to give up his rights.”
But Ribeiro denied reports that Real Madrid had increased their offer. “The last conversation that we had with Real Madrid date from July 3. The offer remains the one that everyone is aware of 21 million euros (£15m).”
