The Brazilian has to leave so that the Manchester City star could join…
Manchester City’s big-money flop Robinho could hold the key to the potential sale of their current Argentine striker Carlos Tevez.
The Serie A side want to sign the Argentine this summer but need to sell the Brazilian international to raise the funds to complete a deal.
The Brazilian striker has made it clear he is feeling homesick and has been pushing for a move to his old club since January. Talks broke down six months ago due to his €10 million asking price, but it is now believed the Rossoneri have lowered their expectations.
Argentina international has just one year remaining on his current deal at Eastlands and is set for talks with new boss Manuel Pellegrini when he returns from a holiday in his homeland later this month, reports the Daily Mirror. In addition, he recently admitted his future at Manchester City is uncertain, amid reports that the Rossoneri want to sign him.
“I really don’t know anything about my future, I have to wait for news,” he told Radio Cooperativa when he attended a Boca game in Argentina.
Milan have already failed in their attempts to swoop for Tevez in the previous transfer windows but they are determined to add the charismatic Argentine to their attacking riches.
He is reportedly prepared to take a pay-cut to move to the Serie A giant.
