Felipe Anderson could go to AC MIlan as part of a deal to bring Robinho to Santos
Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that Santos playmaker Felipe Anderson could be used as part of a deal to take AC Milan forward Robinho back to his former club. Santos are keen to bolster their attacking options for next season and believe they can entice Robinho back to Brazil from the struggling Italian giants.
The report labels Anderson, 19, as the "New Ganso" and describe the player as having the "Same technique, same skill on the last pass" as Ganso, who moved to São Paulo in September, but suggest he is "perhaps a bit more dynamic, which serves to break beyond the defence."
The sports daily also suggested that other European teams are interested in Felipe Anderson, including Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Tottenham and Wolfsburg. However it seems that Milan's interest is a little more serious, even sending sporting director Ariedo Braida on a trip to Brazil to observe the player.
Robinho, 28, has been on the Santos wish list for a while but on Friday coach, Muricy Ramalho, suggested that it may be hard to bring the player back due to the financial demans involved.
