The 30-year-old is under contract with the Italian giants until June 2016 but has expressed his wish to leave the San Siro outfit this summer after four years at the club.

"Robinho wants to go to the Major League Soccer," AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said to Milan's official website.

"There is a negotiation in place with Orlando, the same club that Kaka joined.

"They are keen to take Robinho and the player is willing to leave.

"We are not close to completing the deal so we shall see.

"In any case we have an excellent rapport with Robinho."

Should Robinho succeed, he will team up with former AC Milan teammate and fellow Brazilian Kaka.

Kaka left Milan by mutual consent to sign for Orlando City last week.

The 32-year-old midfielder had only returned to the San Siro last summer after four years at Real Madrid.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
