How Much Does Robinho Make?

Try $300,000 per week. That's his new salary at Manchester City. It's sad that he's leaving Madrid already, but that's the way it goes. It will be interesting to see how he performs in the EPL, what with the propensity for defenders to kick a bit more than in La Liga. Cristiano Ronaldo adjusted, so I'm sure Robinho can and will dance as much as he wants. I think he'll dazzle the crowds, just take a look at what he did in his first game for Real Madrid.

Does this mean that Manchester City will have a chance at winning the EPL or at least getting into the top four? Mark Hughes, another Manchester United player now coaching in the EPL, will have enough money to buy the player he needs it seems, and it is good to see Shawn Wright Philips back at the club, but it's still an up hill battle to match Arsenal, Liverpool, and so on. We'll see. I don't think anyone can beat the other Manchester team that wears red and just signed Berbatov.
