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.

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.

Robinho might be signing on a permanent basis for Santos at the end of this season.
Although, there have been speculations of him being lined up by the Mexican and American clubs, the 30-year old forward seems to be interested in prolonging his tenure in his motherland.
Robinho has hinted that he has got luring offers from overseas, but, the way he spoke in his interview yesterday, it could have been easily made out that he has his heart at Santos only having come through the ranks at the club and until, the circumstances force him to make an exit from there, he would stay there.
