Report: Robinho's future remains uncertain as Milan wait for an offer from the UAE
Robinho's future continues to remain uncertain, with Milan waiting for an offer from the United Arab Emirates, according to reports.
Respected Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims that the Rossoneri were anticipating concrete interest from an Arabian Gulf League side on Tuesday, but didn't mention a specific outfit.
The news is the latest development in the ongoing saga surrounding Robinho’s future. The 30 year-old has reportedly been told that he can leave Milan this summer, with new Head Coach Filippo Inzaghi deeming him surplus to requirements.
New Major League Soccer franchise Orlando City, who have already signed Kaká, were initially favourites, but have struggled to find an agreement with both Milan and Robinho.
Their stalling has seen the likes of Atlético Mineiro, Beşiktaş, Cruzeiro, Santos, Tigres UANL and, most recently, Olympiacos linked, but they all have seemingly ruled themselves out.
Where Robinho will end up remains unclear. The Brazil international - capped 92 times - has a contract with Milan until June 2016 and may be forced to stay, despite a lack of first-team prospects.
Having been an instrumental part of the side that won the 2010-11 title, he has slowly slipped out of favour and last season managed just five goals in 32 appearances. At his two previous clubs, Real Madrid and Manchester City, it was a similar scenario, where he started well, before fading.
