Santos still in talks with Milan over 'complicated' Robinho deal
Santos Vice-President Odilio Rodrigues has revealed that the club are still in talks with Milan forward Robinho but the negotiations are “complicated”.
Reports circulated yesterday that the Brazilian side had pulled out of talks with the 28-year-old, especially as the club confirmed the capture of Cruzeiro's Walter Montillo.
However, the administrator has today confirmed that discussions are still ongoing but the deal is complicated.
Rodrigues told ESPN Brasil: "Robinho is a great player. He is an idol at Santos and the crowd love him.
"But we have always said that these are difficult negotiations because of the cost of the player.
"We are talking with Milan, but we'll have to wait and see what will happen.
"The deal is complicated."
The San Siro outfit managed to secure a move home for Robinho’s former Rossoneri team-mate Alexandre Pato, who joined Corinthians on Thursday, but are having less luck trying to sell their ex-Manchester City man.
