Cruzeiro rule themselves out of the running for Robinho’s signature
Robinho’s agent Marisa Ramos revealed yesterday that Brazilian side Cruzeiro were showing interest in the AC Milan forward.
However, today the sporting director of the club has insisted his side are not chasing the Brazil international.
Cruzeiro’s sporting director Alexandre Mattos told CalcioMercato that the 30-year-old will not play for the Brasileirão champions.
“Robinho will not be one of our players,” Mattos was quoted by Football Italia as saying.
“There has been no offer. Robinho is not in our plans. Where will he go? I don’t know. Let’s see. But Robinho won’t play for Cruzeiro.”
Orlando City have been favourites for his signature anyway but it was expected that he would return to his native country for a short spell, at least.
With Cruzeiro seemingly out of the running, though, the options for the former Manchester City playmaker are running out.
