Santos and Milan are looking to work together in different areas and a meeting between the leaders of the two clubs took place yesterday.

Milan officially released Robinho from his contract this week, giving him a chance to stay at Santos, where he’s been on loan since the 2014 summer, with the Brazilian club paying no fee (although Binho has several offers from different clubs).

It was initially believed that Santos President Modesto Junior Roma would meet with Adriano Galliani to talk about Robinho but their meeting took place yesterday – after the Brazilian had been released – and other topics were discussed. “It’s been a good meeting,” Modesto Junior said after the meeting.

“We discussed a variety of topics, and building a good relationship, not just with regard to the transfer market. Gabigol? Maybe, we’ll see. There will be other meetings, but not in the next few days.”

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport this morning, there was a talk about Alex da Costa, who Santos want to sign this summer and also about Gabriel Barbosa – Gabigol (pictured being hugged by Robinho) – and Gustavo Henrique as Milan could get an option on the 2 men as part of an agreement over Alex. But like Modesto said, not only the market was talked about.

Gazzetta states that Galliani and Modesto Junior have created a solid foundation for future collaboration between the two clubs which could include partnership in the youth sector and also bringing the two brands together for initiatives like friendlies, tours and other commercial projects.

This is good news, but pleaase dont buy anybody before new coach arrives! Let him make his squad…

Btw what os happening with the sale?? I havent read anything in a week…


Please give them Alex, Menez, Montolivo and any other bidone they want.


Good news. But still same mistakes. Buying all the players in the world still does not change the fact that they won’t play. We have 20 defenders but 15 injured. Midfield, we take on our youth -21 just to make numbers. .. does it not bother anyone? Like Zapata. I’m not sure if he is even in Italy. . What about albertazzi? Guy must train day in day out but I bet his kit has not been washed. Of corse they’re gonna fuchsia off. Last year Cristante this year sapo, niang, El 92, next year all the others. Inzaghi not… Read more »


Awesome. Santos is a talent factory.


Great news… Gabriel Barbosa is the perfect player we need to lead our attack…




Gabigol and niang could be really good duo


very good. we already control major points in east asia and middle east, south america would be a good economic bonus.


I just hate the fact that we seem slow to action. We keep hearing about the management considering steps that are right but never really doing anything about it. We lost many players that way. Erick lamela, hernanes, pastore etc. As for the club sale, I think berlusconi will sell small parts to different investors but in the end, time is of the essence.
