Robinho on the Move?

Brazilian striker Robinho is rumoured to be set for a move. Where to? Turkey and Germany figure among the most favoured destinations according to the latest soccer gossip as the new season gets under way.

Absent from the 0-0 draw between his club Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur FC in the English premier League, Brazilian striker Robinho is said to be on the move, destined for Fenerbaçhe in Turkey or Schalke 04 in Germany. According to French soccer edition L’Equipe, Schalke 04 coack Felix Magath wants Robinho to team up with his former colleague from Real Madrid, Raul.

Robinho, 26, who played a master game for Brazil in last weeks’ 2-0 win away to the United States of America, has had difficulty in finding form at City, the club he joined two seasons ago in a 42-million Euro deal from Real Madrid, where he teamed up with Raul and played together for three years.

The deal with Schalke, according to the French publication, would be worth 25 million Euro.

Meanwhile the championships are off. In England, Chelsea got off to a 6-0 start, a thrashing of West Bromwich Albion, one of those clubs too big for the second tier and often not quite good enough for the first. Drogba scored a hat-trick, Malouda 2 goals and Lampard one.

In France, while Toulouse and Caen have both scored maximum points from the first two games, Marseilles, Bordeaux and Arles-Avignon have yet to get a draw even.

In Russia, Zenit was held to a 1-1 draw at home by Dinamo Moskva but retains the leadership by a comfortable margin.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
