Santos confirm Robinho talks

Brazilian club Santos have moved to confirm speculations linking them with a January bid for Milan forward Robinho.

Following a promising start to his career at San Siro, the 28-year-old has experienced some problems at the club and has been heavily linked with a return to Brazil.

His former club Santos were believed to be preparing a bid for Robinho’s services, and the Brazilians have now confirmed the talks are ongoing.

“We are in negotiations,” Santos vice-president Odilio Rodrigues told UOL Esporte. “It will be difficult but we are doing everything in our power to realize our fans’ dream.”

Milan chiefs are prepared to cash in on their star player and are thought to be holding out for €7.5 million.

It was at Santos that Robinho made a name for himself, spending four years there before joining Real Madrid in a €42.5m switch.

Robinho returned to the club for a six-month loan spell in 2010, after which he was sold to AC Milan.

Should the transfer go through, there is every chance that the forward will eventually end his career at Estadio Urbano Caldeira.
