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.

AC Milan will have a new era under the belt Wednesday officially present Clarence Seedorf as the new manager prior to the match against Hellas Verona during the weekend. The new manager will already have the support of his star players after having played for the club during their illustrious period. Robinho has also given the new manager of major boost by returning to form in the 3-1 win over Spezia. This was the first match for the club since the 4-3 defeat against Sassuolo, which also resulted in the sacking of manager Massimiliano Allegri.
It was Robinho opened the scoring after 28 minutes on the clock. The Brazilian has been one of the underperformance in the team in the last few months, but he seems to have realised that he needs to perform exceptionally well in order to get into the Brazilian national team. Scolari will be announcing the squads of the World Cup hosts shortly and Robinho faces a fight due to the form of his competitors. He gave a major impression in this match, which turned out to be a comfortable victory for the home team after goals from Pazzini and Honda.
Ferrari’s late goal was nothing more than a consolation for the away team, as they crashed out of the competition. Robinho has not played for the national team since 2011, but he has been included in the last two friendly matches by Luis Felipe Scolari. The 29-year-old had been linked with a return to Brazilian football with Santos on a permanent basis, but it appears that the move has not gone beyond being a rumour.
Santos would have been unable to match the financial demands of Milan for one of their few remaining star players. Seedorf is expected to take charge for the home match against Hellas Verona during the weekend.
The AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has said that he is confident that the club can handle the departures of key players like Robinho and Alexandre Pato. Milan have already lost a number of key players during the summer, which led to the upheaval from the fans. This has led to many fans boycotting the matches, while the season ticket sales have been at an all-time low for the Italian club. The decreased quality on the pitch has also meant that Allegri has struggled to replicate the title success for AC Milan. They are extremely close to dropping out of the Champions League qualification as well.
Alexandre Pato has been linked with a move to the Club World Cup champions Corinthians, while Robinho has been linked with a move to his former club Santos. The Brazilian club Santos have repeatedly stated that they would like to bring the former Real Madrid and Manchester city man during the January transfer window, while the player is also keen. However, the two clubs have not been able to agree a transfer fee for the player, with Santos reportedly running out of patience. They recently stated that they will be making a final bid for the player in the hope of getting him in the first week of January.
“Will I be more disappointed if Pato or Robinho leaves? They are different feelings. Pato has the potential to win the Ballon d’Or, but I understand he needs to find that confidence he lost amid all the injuries. Robinho, ah what to say about Robinho? He is a player of a superior level,” said Allegri in a recent interview. Milan are currently in the seventh position in the Italian Serie A. They are also facing Barcelona in the last 16 stage of the Champions League.
AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri has suggested that he could be welcoming both the Brazilian strikers Robinho and Alexandre Pato in the next few days. The Brazilian pair are currently out the first team action with an injury. They have not played in a match so far this season. Due to the absence of such quality players, AC Milan have struggled to come to any sort of form in the first few matches of the campaign. In fact, they have just one victory in the matches played so far, which has only served to infuriate the fans even more.
The AC Milan fans are already extremely distraught with the club after seeing a number of high profile players either leave without being offered new contracts or being sold in the case of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The fans see the club being destroyed in their own eyes. They have expressed their displeasure at the way the club has resisted investment into the new players by not showing an interest in buying the season tickets. As AC Milan prepare to face Inter Milan in the Milan derby, there will be a lot of empty seats because AC Milan fans have not yet purchased tickets for this match.
“Robinho should be fit for Cagliari, while I hope Pato returns in time for the derby,” said the AC Milan manager Massimiliano Allegri, who has also been criticised by the fans. The 43-year-old is seen by many as a dead man walking before he is eventually replaced by another manager. AC Milan are unlikely to make it into the Champions League spot this season due to the ongoing struggles both on and off the field. As result, revenues are also expected to drop quite significantly over the next few seasons, as they look to rebuild for the future.
