14mill is more than enough for him, you would be stupid too pay more than 15mill for a player that is unproven in Europe

He is a HUGE talent you know and young, plus he is one of the starting 11 of the Brazilian NT, I don't think that 14m is enough.

He is benched, unlike Kaka, Ronaldinho, Ronaldo or Adriano.

Kaka cost how much- and he was just as big a talent as robinho is now- its true he not proven in europe- no-one wants to risk another Denislon situation

Remember thats 14m Pound's not Euro's or Dollar's.

I wouldn't trust any quotes that come out during the whole Robinho transfer saga, especially when they are to biased newspapers such as Marca or The NoW or The Sun, these guys will manipulate quotes to sell papers. Remember in Jan he was almost certain to go to Madrid.

I say just wait and see, because the game that the Arsenal scouts went to see had 2 teams, and the other was Gilberto's old club so we may have also been looking at some unknown after being tipped of by Gilberto, like Reyes told us who to look out for at Sevilla. Although i would be great to see him in an Arsenal shirt although it seems unlikely to me. I think Torres from At. Madrid is a greater possibility especially after they finished 11th, and he is apparently demanding european football.

Henry and Forlan win Golden Shoe (6)

Villarreal's Diego Forlan and Arsenal's Thierry Henry and will share the Golden Shoe award for being this season's top goalscorers in Europe.

Ex-Manchester United striker Forlan scored twice on Sunday for his Spanish team to join Henry on the 25-goal mark.

Henry becomes the first player to win the award two years in a row.

It is only the second time it has been shared. In 1989/90 Bulgarian Hristo Stoichkov and Mexican Hugo Sanchez were the joint winners.

Henry is the sixth player to win the award twice, joining such legends as Eusebio and Gerd Muller.

Forlan's double came as Villarreal beat Levante 4-1 to clinch a spot in the next season's Champions League.

"It's been an incredible season and we couldn't have finished it in better style," the Uruguayan said.

"I'm very happy to have ended up as top scorer as it is something that doesn't happen every day.

"Qualifying for the Champions League is a prize that we all deserve as we worked hard for it throughout season."

Yes amazingly this is the very same Forlan, who could was once commented on (By a BBC commentator) that "you know your defence has problems when Forlan starts scoring against you".

LOL the only reason Forlan even gets to share the boot with Henry is cause Henry didnt play like the last 7 games for us...... to be fair Forlan did work his ass off in the season and truely deserves sumthin for proving all his critics dead wrong......

Why would Arsenal even need to dish out huge sums of money on Robinho? Is the attack really a problem for you guys?

But tbh Henry scored many penalties, Forlan only 1, meanwhile the teammate of Forlan, Riquelme, scored 8 penalties :-)

The real reason behind Forland winning the pichichi is simple: Juan Roman Riquelme

If we get Robinho we're going to have problems deciding who plays upfront. With the likes of Quincy already knocking on the door..

We could go after Frey, i hope, but Man U are trying to get his signature also, Niemi is another possibility.
I thought you said you didnt like the Arse...unless of course you mean 'we' as in Barca going after Frey, in which case thats the first ive heard of that

So what is the deal with that little race for Ramos' signature you all were involved in? I remember it looked as if you or ManU were gonna get the lad from Seville, but since then ive heard nothing

Robinho can also play out on the left or upfront so he could be Pires Replacement with Reyes up front anyway he aint here and probably wont be so lets not worry about the situation
