AC Milan star Robinho set for Santos return
Despite interest reported from Orlando City, the Brazilian appears set to lower his wage demands in order to complete a move back to his homeland, according to goal.com.
The 30-year-old has been linked with Atlético Mineiro, Flamengo and Cruzeiro in recent weeks but now it seems as though he is on the verge of joining Santos after vice-president Odilio Rodrigues said that a transfer is close to being completed.
Despite stressing that the deal is not 100 per cent complete, Rodrigues revealed that Robinho has lowered his wage demands in order to force through a return to his old club.
"Although many Italian outlets have taken for granted the return of Robinho, I can confirm to you that negotiations are progressing well," the club chief told Santos TV.
"We are doing everything possible to sign the player and he has also lowered his initial demands.
"We have huge hope that the transfer will be complete soon. We hope to give the fans this gift as soon as possible."
Robinho joined AC Milan from Manchester City for £14m in 2010.
