Manchester City's Brazilian playmaker Robinho has touted the credentials of two of his countrymen to boss Mark Hughes.
The Blues are widely expected to be one of the busier sides during the January transfer window, with the Abu Dhabi United Group ready to make sizeable funds available for fresh faces.
A host of big names have already been linked with a New Year switch to Eastlands, with Europe's top talent falling under Hughes' radar.
However, he may decide to do away with the suggestions of his scouting network and instead follow Robinho's advice to bring in Fluminense centre-half Thiago Silva and Santos full-back Kleber.
"I have suggested Kleber, the left wing back of Santos and the central defender of Fluminense, Thiago Silva, because they are playing very well," City's record signing told Gazeta Press.
"If I had the chance to choose players I would also hire Kaka and Ronaldo, but in this moment our team needs to get reinforced at the back and these two players are doing really well for their teams in Brazil.
"And in addition to reinforcing the team with new players, what we have to do at Manchester City is to change our mindset and start to think about winning titles."
