The AC Milan striker Robinho has been linked with a move away from the club throughout the summer, while the rumours have been persistent even after the end of the transfer window. However, he will not be sold even in the January transfer window according to the CEO of the club, Adriano Galliani. Robinho has not been one of the best players at AC Milan over the last few seasons, although he was exceptionally good in his first season at the club will he was on loan from Manchester City. The striker recently scored from the penalty spot against Juventus to give the Italian champions their second defeat of the season.
However, this was his first goal of the season, as he has struggled with injuries and form throughout the first few weeks of the campaign. He has been dominated by the performances of the young striker Stephen El Shaarawy, who has managed to score 10 goals in just 14 matches for the club this season. Speaking after the 1-0 win over Juventus, the AC Milan Chief executive officer said that the situation with Robinho remains the same – he will not leave the club in the summer. Meanwhile, he has also confirmed that the club are working towards making the loan move of Kevin Constant a permanent deal in January.
“Robinho will remain at Milan. He [Constant] will probably be signed permanently,” said the AC Milan CEO in response to the transfer speculation surrounding Robinho. AC Milan have already sold a number of high profile players in the summer, which has led to some intense backlash from the fans. They have also struggled to get results on the pitch as well, which have put the pressure on the manager Massimiliano Allegri. However, this win over Juventus helps them rise up to the 10th position in the league.
