AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani to meet with Atlético Mineiro over Robinho - Report
AC Milan vice president Adriano Galliani has revealed that another club has joined the race to sign Brazilian forward Robinho after Rio de Janeiro giants Flamengo dropped out of the running.
Robinho, 28, has attracted interest from a number of Brazilian clubs since expressing his desire to return to his homeland but it appears that Atlético Mineiro are the latest to join the hunt for the former Real Madrid and Manchester City star.
Galliani has been in Brazil for the past few days as he looks to sort out the future of not only Robinho, but also Alexandre Pato, who is attracting strong interest from Corinthians.
"Flamengo dropped out, but we have two other clubs interested. I'm meeting with them. One is Santos and the other I cannot say," - Galliani told Lancenet!
When asked if the club was Atlético, he said: “I know nothing”, before laughing and giving away his secret.
Robinho is thought to favour a move back to his former club Santos but is so keen to return to Brazil that he has not ruled out signing for other Brasileirão clubs.
