Santos abandon Robinho talks
Santos are reportedly pulling out of negotiations to sign AC Milan striker Robinho after the club confirmed the capture of Cruzeiro's Walter Montillo last night.
The €6m deal to take Montillo to Santos was confirmed by the club yesterday evening and there are doubts about their ability to complete both deals.
However, this does not mean that Robinho will stay at AC Milan with Flamengo and Fluminese also known to be interested in the former Seleção star.
Despite the interest, a known stumbling block could be the Brazilian clubs' ability to fund such a move as Milan are believed to want around €12million for the former Manchester City forward.
Another potential problem could be Robinho’s wage demands as the forward reportedly wants €5million a season and it is unclear whether anybody can match that request.
