SSN confirm deal

All from Sky Sports News' Andy Burton:

First bid made at 18.00GMT, €35million.

Eventually re-raised to €42million.

As soon as Robinho heard about the chance, he took it instantly. He had previously threatened to go back to Brazil and not come back and was in tears at having to stay in Madrid.

He will be paid €6million/year after tax, or £94,000/week.

Andy Myers has just confirmed the deal.
"He's now a Manchester City player. Absolutely no going back on that"
