Robinho's agent has admitted the Manchester City star would love to move to Barcelona this summer.

"The relationship between Robinho and the board at Manchester City is very good, although it's true that there are some problems with the coach, Roberto Mancini."

The Brazilian, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Santos in his homeland after failing to force his way into the plans of City coach Roberto Mancini, has been linked with a possible swap deal involving Barca striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and midfielder Yaya Toure.

And his representative, Evandro de Souza, admits the Camp Nou would be a dream destination for the former Real Madrid man.

"Any footballer in the world would love to play for a club like Barca," De Souza told Spanish newspaper Sport.

Problems

"The relationship between Robinho and the board at Manchester City is very good, although it's true that there are some problems with the coach, Roberto Mancini."

De Souza is set for a meeting with City next Wednesday to discuss the player's future.

"We have a meeting with City on the 16th [June]. I will travel to Manchester with Gilvan de Souza (Robinho's father) and we will look at the situation with Robinho," added De Souza.

However, a summer exit seems certain for the Brazilian international.

"We know that City are looking for a club for Robinho," noted De Souza.

"There will be no quotes (from Robinho, at the moment).

"Robinho is focused on winning the World Cup and fighting for the Copa do Brasil (with Santos)."
