With the news confirmed yesterday that Robinho had signed for AC Milan from Manchester City for a reported £22m it had me thinking to myself "What if he had signed for Chelsea!?".

With his time at Manchester City cut short after a move back to Brazil with Santos on loan until the end of last season, stating his desire to never return to City and now off to Milan its been a massive loss for City. On a reported £160k per week at City and signed at a cost of £32m I have to wonder how City fans feel knowing that it just never really happened for them.

It's a sign that surely you cannot just throw money at the problem if you want to build a Title Winning side and Robinho is the perfect example. At the time of his signing (two years ago more or less to the day) City were beginning to build a side but didn't have the squad they have now so City fans could argue the point that Robinho suffered in a mediocre side. It was only since after then that the money has been banded about and City are now quite rightly considered a side capable of at least a top four finish this season and this is without Robinho.

The thing is and a question I have wondered about ever since that day two years ago when he signed for City is imagine what he would have been like playing for Chelsea and not City if the deal had been done. After all Robino stated on record his desire to come to London and play for Chelsea and we all had expected the deal to be completed before City stepped in at the last minute!.

So the question I ask all of you reading this is:
Would Robino have faired better at Chelsea rather than he did at City?
