Robinho moving to MLS: Former Manchester City star could join Kaka at Orlando City, say AC Milan
Two clubs are negotiating for the 30-year-old Brazilian
Friday 11 July 2014
AC Milan have announced they are negotiating the sale of Brazilian forward Robinho to new Major League Soccer franchise Orlando City.
The 30-year-old is under contract with the Italian giants until June 2016 but has expressed his wish to leave the San Siro outfit this summer after four years at the club.
"Robinho wants to go to the Major League Soccer," AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said to acmilan.com.
"There is a negotiation in place with Orlando, the same club that Kaka joined.
"They are keen to take Robinho and the player is willing to leave.
"We are not close to completing the deal so we shall see. In any case we have an excellent rapport with Robinho."
Should Robinho succeed, he will team up with former AC Milan team-mate and fellow Brazilian Kaka. Kaka has also left the Italian giants to move to MLS
Kaka left Milan by mutual consent to sign for Orlando City last week.
The 32-year-old midfielder had only returned to the San Siro last summer after four years at Real Madrid.
