Roman Gives Ramón Robinho Ultimatum

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has given his Real Madrid counterpart, Ramón Calderón an ultimatum in the Robinho transfer debacle, as the Russian appears to be running out of patience. It looks as though the Robinho soap opera might just have one last breath of controversy before it is put to bed for good. Despite yesterday’s report from Robinho’s agent, Wagner Ribeiro that a deal has been reached by all parties concerned, it seems that Real Madrid are holding out for a slightly higher transfer fee. Ribeiro claimed that the Blues had made a €33 million offer to the Whites for the Brazilian, but the Spanish outfit are yet to officially accept the bid. Now, Marca has reported that Abramovich may be willing to go as high as €37 million, but not one single Euro more. The Russian billionaire, speaking through a representative, has also spat out this ultimatum to Madrid: “Either they take the offer, or there is no deal.” Even at that amount, it will be the biggest summer transfer of the year and if Madrid do not let him go now, his valuation is expected to drop significantly come next season, especially if he sees little playing time at the Bernabéu.
