In the wake of mounting speculation, Robinho has told Real Madrid that he wishes to leave the club.

The Brazil international has been strongly linked with a summer switch to Chelsea and is thought to have told Real's sporting director, Predrag Mijatovic, that he wishes to join the Blues.

The playmaker is understood to have held discussions with Mijatovic last week, during which he revealed his desire to depart the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I have the desire to leave Real Madrid," he told Marca.

Valuation

His agent, Wagner Ribeiro, is reported to have already entered into negotiations with Chelsea in regards to a transfer to Stamford Bridge, although Robinho is yet to meet with Blues officials.

There are also rumours emanating out of Spain that Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon has made contact with Real stipulating the club's willingness to open discussions over a possible deal.

The Primera Liga champions are thought to want around 40million euros (£31.7m) for the 24-year-old, but there are no indications as yet as to how much Chelsea are willing to pay for his services.
