Santos president Marcelo Teixeira is adamant that with Robinho under contract until 2008 any club that wants to sign him will have to meet a US$50 million penalty clause for the player.

Teixeira has already said he will free Robinho after the 2006 World Cup.

As a sign of protest Robinho - whose mother was kidnapped but subsequently rescued earlier this year - is refusing to train with his club, insisting that he can no longer get his head around playing in Brazil.
