Santos re-opens negotiations for AC Milan’s Robinho
However, according to La Repubblica, negotiations for a potential summer transfer have re-opened for the 29-year-old striker, who has featured only sporadically in Serie A and the Champions League this season.
Robinho began his professional career with Santos in 2002 and helped them to win the Campeonato Brasileiro both in his first season and again in 2004. Following three successful seasons, he then moved to Real Madrid in 2005 where he won two La Liga titles in his four year stay with Los Blancos.
After a year and a half in England with Manchester City, he briefly returned to his native Brazil for a six-month loan with Santos before returning to Europe after Milan opted to buy him for approximately €18 million in 2010.
In his debut season with the Rossoneri, he contributed 15 goals in all competitions as Milan won their first Scudetto since 2004 and enjoyed a relatively successful sophomore season, despite their failure to retain the Serie A title.
Yet, this year, having fallen down the pecking order, he has only scored two goals in 16 league appearances this year and was restricted to just three appearances in Milan’s Champions League campaign.
