Report: Beşiktaş ready to bid €4 million for in demand Milan forward Robinho
Beşiktaş are believed to be ready to make a bid for Milan forward Robinho.
Sport Mediaset, as reported by Football Italia, claims that the Istanbul based club have offered Milan €4 million and would give Robinho a three-year deal.
The Brazil international - capped 92 times - has reportedly been told that he can move on after four years in Italy, where he has managed just 17 goals in all competitions across the last three seasons.
Robinho, 30, has won nine major honours during his various spells at Santos, Real Madrid, Manchester City and most recently Milan, but last term he become a bit-part player with the Rossoneri and has now been frozen out.
New Major League Soccer franchise Orlando City had been favourites to sign him, but their inability to conclude a deal allowed the likes of Atlético Mineiro, Cruzeiro, Flamengo, Santos and Tigres UANL to come into the equation.
The majority of those clubs linked have subsequently distanced themselves due to financial constraints, which has seemingly left just Orlando, perhaps Flamengo, and now Beşiktaş in the hunt.
Whether Robinho would be tempted to move to Turkey and play in the Spor Toto Süper Lig remains to be seen. Beşiktaş failed in their attempts to lure Ronaldinho in 2013, but others Brazilians such as Roberto Carlos, Felipe Melo, Alex, Lincoln and Cláudio Taffarel have had success stints over the years.
