Robinho will be a free player once his loan at Santos ends, his lawyer confirmed on Tuesday.
Robinho has been at Santos since the summer and it was obvious to all that he wouldn’t return to Milan.
The Brazilian club is keen to keep him and it was reported over the last few days that they are set to negotiate with the Rossoneri and are even willing to include their young star Gabriel ‘Gabigol’ Barbosa in the deal but it seems that things have taken an unexpected turn.
“He will be free from July 1,” Robinho’s lawyer Marisa Alija Ramos revealed today. “He has already signed the documents to rescind his contract. Now we’ll think calmly about his future, he already has some offers.” Ramos also suggested that the termination is a solution “good for all the parties.”
Robinho joined Milan in 2011 and won the Scudetto in his first season under coach Massimiliano Allegri. He scored 32 goals in 144 appearances in red and black.
