Real Madrid’s Brazilian superstar has worked with Sir Bobby at PSV and Barcelona and has recommended to Kleberson that he should accept our offer.

Kleberson’s agent Simon Clifford said: "Kleberson knows all about Sir Bobby Robson after talking with Ronaldo. He sees it as a great honour that a manager like Bobby is in for him."

Freddy Shepherd hopes to complete the deal for the Brazilian by Thursday.
