Chelsea are favourites to lure Santos starlet Robinho, according to reports on Sunday.

AC Milan, Bayern Munich Barcelona and Real Madrid have all expressed interest in the 20-year-old Brazilian forward.

The player's agent, Wagner Rubiero, told News of the World: "Chelsea are the only team who have confirmed they are prepared to pay £14m.

"Robinho is excited at the prospect of the move and we are trying to make sure everything is OK.

"We are following Chelsea very closely in order to give Robinho all the information, so he is not scared of going to a country so different to Brazil.

"But Robinho asked me to check clubs in Europe after what happened with his mother. Chelsea have made an offer and that is encouraging."

Robinho, who has played a key role at Santos, wants to leave Brazil after his mother was kidnapped.

Rubiero also stated that Chelsea would like to bring Robinho to Stamford Bridge during the January transfer period.


I think he could be extremely useful to us, he could do a hellish partnershio with Robben with Drogba upfront, with that and with Lampard supporting from behind there's nothing that can stop that offense.

Althought there's too much competition for him in the market, the club that concerns me the most is Real Madrid, because as we all know, when they want a player they always get it -well except for Vieira- actually I don't know if I wanna see him in Real or in Chelsea.
