AC Milan step up Cerci chase as Robinho nears move

Alessio Cerci - TorinoAC Milan striker Robinho’s agent is in Dubai negotiating a move, allowing the Rossoneri to move for Torino forward Alessio Cerci.

Milan have been trying to move Robinho on all summer, with moves to the United States and Brazil having stalled over wage demands, but a breakthrough may have been made with interest in the Brazilian international coming from Dubai.

According to La Stampa, Robinho’s representative Marisa Ramos has flown to Dubai to listen to what is believed to be multiple offers for her client, with several cash rich UAE clubs wanting to take the high profile player to the Middle East.

Robinho’s departure would mean Milan have finally freed up funds to move for their number one summer target, Italian international striker Alessio Cerci, who is believed to be available for around €18 million.

The Brazilian striker is on a massive wage in Milan, and his departure would allow the Rossoneri to move for Cerci without financially crippling the club.
