AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani has confirmed that Flamengo are showing interest in Brazilian forward Robinho.
The former Manchester City star has expressed his desire to return to Brazil, with a return to Santos the most likely option.
However, Flamengo have also joined the race for the highly rated forward, according to Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani.
“Robinho to Flamengo? It’s possible, yes,” Galliani told reporters after landing in Rio de Janeiro.
The Rossoneri official has traveled to Brazil to negotiate with clubs interested in Robinho and Alexandre Pato, who are both hoping to return to their native country.
Robinho, 28, has failed to make a big impact in Europe and has always saved his best performances for the Brazil’s top flight.
Since joining Milan in the summer of 2010, the forward has made 73 Serie A appearances for the club and scored 22 goals.
He has featured in 11 league matches this term, starting 6 of those, and netted only 2 times.
