Robinho’s career at AC Milan has come to a halt after the Brazilian rescinded his contract with the Italian outfit with immediate effect.
Robinho has been at Milan for the last couple of seasons after initially moving on a loan deal from Manchester City. He made the move permanent after a £ 16 million transfer fee was exchanged hands. Yet, the Brazilian has never had a very consistent impact at the San Siro and some of it has been attributed down home sickness. He had already returned to the Brazilian league on a couple of loans spells with Santos – the club where he started his career.
Now, he is on the verge of making a move to the Brazilian league permanent after cancelling his contract with Milan. The contract still had a year to run. Robinho was at Santos on his European wages. Since Santos would have been unable to match those wages, Milan were paying around 40% of it from their own pocket. The opportunity to let go of player who does not want to play for the club and who costs a lot of money to keep seemed hard to let go. The 31-year-old will now be able to discuss terms with any club he wishes and that is likely to be with Santos. Read the rest of this entry »

Former Manchester City striker Robinho moved to English football in a £ 32 million deal in the final day of the transfer window 2008.
He was the first major signing by the club’s current Arab owners. It did not take long for Robinho to establish his mark in English football with a goal against Chelsea, who were believed to be the club on the verge of signing him before City pounced upon the Brazilian. Even though the start was extremely good, Robinho’s performances eventually tailed off and he was allowed to leave on a relatively low transfer fee to AC Milan.
Robinho is now back in Brazilian football and is expected to stay there permanently. Once regarded as the next Pele, the 31-year-old has never produced a consistent run of performances to be regarded as the world’s best player. At the time of his move to City, not many Brazilians knew of the Premier League outfit and it was the case with Robinho himself. In his first press conference, he strangely remarked that he was happy to be joining Chelsea. Reflecting on this strange interview, Robinho has admitted for the first time that he did not know about City when he joined the club. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s been over 7 months since Robinho was loaned from Ac.Milan to Santos and even though the loan deal of the Brazilian will be reaching it’s end in a few months, the agent of Robinho has now revealed that he won’t be returning to Ac.Milan.
Ever since Robinho arrived to Ac.Milan, he has never really made a huge impact as the Brazilian player was given enough time to prove his worth and his price tag of €18 million which was the amount of cash that the Italian side Ac.Milan had to pay in order to sign him from Manchester City.
According to the agent of Robinho, Marisa Ramos stated that Robinho is doing well in his homeland of Brazil and there has already been an agreement that has been established with Santos which is going to keep Robinho until June and even when that time arrives it doesn’t really look like the Brazilian player would want to make a return to a club where he isn’t as appreciated in comparison to Santos in Brazil.
