Blues to launch Robinho bid

Didier Drogba could be used as a makeweight in a deal to buy Robhino from Manchester City.
Chelsea lost out on the mercurial Brazilian winger in August when City scuppered a £28m move from Real Madrid.
Now Robinho has returned to Brazil after leaving a training camp in Spain.
Word circulating is that he was not authorised to leave and will be disciplined when he returns.
Robinho has said that he went home for family reasons.
If there is indeed a fall-out from City, Chelsea could nip in with a nifty piece of transfer work.
They might decide to offload Didier Drogba to City and give them £10m cash for Robinho.
This would certainly please under-pressure Scolari as The blues were desperate for the wide man in the summer.
It could also answer the question: "How do you solve the problem like Drogba?"
Maybe Mr Kenyon has the answer.......
