ROBINHO could be on his way back to Santos if Milan agree to sell him, Santos President says.
Binho signed for Milan in the summer of 2010 from Manchester City for a reported fee of €18m and played a key part last season in Milan’s Scudetto victory, scoring 14 goals for Allegri’s Milan side in the process.
However, the 28-year-old has failed to replicate his form from last term or stay consistent this year and it is not out of the question that he will leave this summer. Now, Santos President claims he wants to join them.
“Is there a possibility Robinho can come back to Santos? I think so,” Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro told Sportv.globo.com. “Santos want Robinho and he wants to return, so now it depends on Milan. We will talk to the Italian club.” If Robinho moves there it will be his third spell with Brazilian side (2002–2005 & 2010).
South American expert and FIFA agent Dabatino Durante suggested this week that Santos can sign Robinho perhaps if they include Paulo Henrique Ganso in the deal, in whom Milan had interest in the past.
