Robinho: Keen on a return to Brazil

Robinho: Keen on a return to Brazil

The 28-year-old Brazilian appears poised to leave the San Siro and is reportedly hoping for a move back to his homeland.

Flamengo have had a €6m bid for the ex-Real Madrid and Manchester City player turned down, while Fluminense and Sao Paulo are both rumoured to be interested.

However, it appears Robinho's own preference would be a return to Santos - the team with which he began his career.

"Everyone knows how much I like Santos," he told Globo Esporte. "I grew up there, I have a beautiful history at the club.

"Flamengo are a great club, too. Both clubs are big, but there is nothing decided yet. I am still under contract with Milan. Let's see."

Robinho previously returned to Santos for a six-month loan spell from Manchester City in January 2010 and although he expressed a desire to stay, City refused to renew his loan and the two clubs were unable to agree a transfer fee.

The Brazilian subsequently moved to Milan, where he has been reduced a bit-part role this season, starting only seven games for Massimiliano Allegri's side.

Despite that frustration, Robinho insists he will respect his contract at the San Siro.

He added: "Everything is fine regarding the club. If I leave or not, I don't know. Only God knows the future.

"What is certain is that I have a contract and I am a Milan player."

Sao Paulo are understood to be keen on signing Robinho as a replacement for Paris Saint-Germain-bound Lucas Moura.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
