Orlando City president confirms Robinho interest after Kaka swoop
The president of MLS outfit Orlando City has expressed his desire to unite former Brazil stars Kaka and Robinho at the American franchise, with the former already a fully signed-up member of next season's roster.
Flavio Augusto da Silva told Radio Bandeirantes: "We have not yet bought Robinho, but we are talking with AC Milan and we believe he will be a great reinforcement for our team."
"He's a great player, he has just turned 30 years old, he is very motivated and he has shown a willingness to play for our club."
Should Robinho opt to join Kaka in North America, it is not known whether or not he would then join a club on loan for the rest of the calendar year, as his former teammate has done at Sao Paulo.
But, according to Silva, that wouldn't present a problem: "The six month loan of Kaka came because I respect the will of the athlete. Whether or not we buy Robinho will depend on what he decides to do in the next six months, too."
