Orlando City club president: Robinho would be great alongside Kaká

Flavio Augusta da Silva is hoping the Brazilian will link up with his former Milan team-mate in the MLS.

Despite scoring 25 goals in 108 appearances, Robinho has never truly impressed at the San Siro since his move to Italy from Manchester City in 2010.

He has been linked with a move away from Milan in the past few transfer windows and MLS side Orlando City are the latest to be linked with the 30-year-old.

A fee with the Serie A side is yet to be agreed but Orlando City chief Flavio Augusta da Silva says that the Brazilian would be a fine addition to their roster.

"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 told Radio Bandeirantes.

"He's a great player, he just turned 30 years old, he is very motivated and he has shown a willingness to play for our club."

With Orlando City due to start competing in 2015, Kaká has been loaned out to São Paulo for the remainder of the Brazilian season.

Silva stressed that the decision to send him to the club he started his professional career at was totally up to the player.

"The six-month loan of Kaká came because I respect the will of the athlete. Kaká wanted the loan move to Sao Paulo, he was decisive about it.

"Whether or not we buy Robinho will depend on what he decides to do in the next six months, too."
