On September 1, 2008, the final day of the Premier League summer transfer window, Robinho completed a €42.5m (£32.5m) move to Manchester City. This occurred on the same day the club was bought out by the Arab investment company Abu Dhabi United Group. He had previously been linked with a transfer to Chelsea, and he had emphasised his desire to play for the London club up to the eve of the transfer. On August 27, Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon said that the club were "confident" that the transaction would go through, and Madrid had also given their consent for the player to leave.
In an interview with The Guardian, Robinho stated that City being a big club and the presence of friends Jô and Elano were incentives for him to join the team. He made his team debut and scored his very first Premier League goal on Saturday 13th September 2008, in a 3-1 home defeat to Chelsea. Ironically it was against the team that wanted him.  On October 26, he scored his first Premier League hat-trick against Stoke City, and he scored his first European goal for City in a 3-2 UEFA Cup group stage win over FC Twente on November 6. He was given the captain's armband for the match against Hull City due to Richard Dunne's suspension which they drew 2-2.
 Real Madrid
Robinho played his first La Liga game on August 28, 2004 in a 3-1 win against Cádiz CF, coming on as a 49th-minute replacement for Thomas Gravesen. He ended up making 37 appearances and scored eight goals in his first season.
Robinho playing for Manchester City.At the start of the 2006-07 campaign, Robinho fell out of favour with new manager Fabio Capello, and he spent much of the first few months of the season on the bench. Only after the winter break did Robinho find himself in the starting eleven. He was given permission by FIFA to skip a Copa América training session with Brazil so he could take part in Madrid's season finale against Mallorca on June 18, 2007, which they won 3-1 and in the process claimed their thirtieth league title, which was also the third of Robinho's career. He contributed eleven goals and fourteen assists for Madrid in the 2007-08 La Liga season. On September 1, 2008, team president Ramón Calderón revealed to the Brazilian media that he had threatened to end Robinho's career in order to force his exit from the club, and claimed that the reason for Robinho's departure was "due to human indolence."....
