Robinho Reveals Ronaldo Swap Deal?

Real Madrid's Robinho has reportedly admitted that a proposed swap deal involving himself and Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo is a possibility, according to Portuguese daily A Bola...
The 24-year-old also made clear Chelsea's interest in his services.

After a brilliant first half of the season, the Brazil international picked up an abdominal injury and was rushed back somewhat prematurely, which affected his performances for the club.

As a result, he found himself mostly performing his duties from the bench toward the end of the season, with Arjen Robben taking his place in the side.

Rumours have since been rife that the player would leave the club this summer, with Milan, Internazionale and Chelsea thought to have been the first clubs to show genuine interest.

With the Blues thought to be at the head of the queue, talk of a swap deal for Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo - whom Real Madrid have even declared they have given up on - have resurfaced, and Robinho is not ruling out that minute possibility.

"There are [transfer] proposals, yes," revealed Robinho.

"One is from Manchester United which would be in exchange for Cristiano Ronaldo and the other is from Chelsea.''

The legitimacy of these quotes could yet be called into question, but the Brazilian wizard has already revealed that, if the club agreed to sell him, he would have no problems leaving.

"I have never hidden my desire to remain at Real Madrid," he stated last week. "But if the negotiations materialise into something I will have no problem in leaving.''
