AC Milan coach confirms Robinho wants Brazil return

Action Images

AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed that Robinho wants to leave the San Siro and could return to Brazil in the January transfer window.

There have been numerous rumours linking the 28-year-old forward with a move away from the Serie A club, in particular to former club Santos.

However, any potential deals have stalled between the two clubs as Milan are believed to want €10 for Robinho's services after the Peixe had a reported bid of €6million rejected.

Robinho has admitted that the opportunity to return to his homeland would be an easy decision to make but Allegri had been reticent to confirm reports of the striker’s state of unrest.

The 45-year-old has now revealed Robinho's situation following his side’s 4-1 victory over Pescara today.

He said: "I can't do anything more than let him play. Everything else is between him and the club.

"He's been away from Brazil for eight years and wants to go back, but if he stays I hope he will take our cause very seriously."

Robinho, who joined Milan from Manchester City for €18m in 2010, played a key role in the side that won the Scudetto in 2011 but has found chances limited this season.
