AC Milan’s Brazilian striker Robinho has been linked with a move from the club for a long time. Even though many of the officials at the club have denied that the player would be sold in the January transfer window following a summer, the manager Massimiliano Allegri has dropped a bombshell by admitting that he does not know whether the player will be at the club in the summer. Robinho has stated that he is home sick and he would like to return to his home country. The Brazilian club Santos have been linked with a move for the player.

Robinho played for Santos before moving to Real Madrid in 2005. Since then, he has played in his home country only once when he spent a season on loan at Santos. Now, he is looking at a permanent move back to his home country, but Milan are reluctant to sell him due to the lack of quality options up front. They have already sold the Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the Brazilian Alexandre Pato. This has left them with only Robinho and Stephan El Shaarawy as the experienced players to lead the line up. Allegri has said that there is a possibility that Robinho could be sold in the summer.

“I don’t know if Robinho will still be here next season, so for the moment I am choosing M’Baye Niang because he gives me more guarantees. The team is doing fairly well and this was a good victory in a difficult arena. Atalanta caused us a few problems, but we did well for over an hour and only ran a few risks at the end. We’re a little more organised in the middle and can move the ball better in attack, which means when we play quickly we can do damage,” said Allegri ahead of the Atlanta match.
