Robinho to Santos is done, letting the Kaka to Milan talk step up once again…
Santos seem to have finally meet Milan the halfway, as an agreement between the two sides has just been reached. Globoesporte reports that Milan were tabled in a way lower bid than they had expected, but eventually accepted the offer of €6 million.
The Brazilian striker left his homeland eight years ago to initially sign for Real Madrid, before later moving to Manchester City and then to his current club Milan. He returned to the club briefly on loan in 2010, playing just twice, but now both parties seem to have agreed a deal that would see the 29-year-old back on a permanent basis.
It is all now up to the player himself, as he is yet to agree on taking a significant pay-cut in the coming days due to the fact that the Brazilian transfer window closes on 20 July.
“I hope he reduces his demands. We know he is an important asset at Milan, and [we] have the expectation that he will reduce [his demands] so that the whole operation becomes feasible”, Santos’ CEO Odilio Rodrigues told ESPN Brasil.
If everything goes according to plan, Robinho will sign a three-year deal, while Milan will get the needed €6 million.
That is all regarding the former Real Madrid star, now let’s check out on the current Madrid AWOL man, Kaka. Whilst Los Blancos are luring highly-regarded talents, they have locked the Brazilian experienced midfielder in an itchy box and apparently thrown the key for good.
According to Marca, new arrival Illarramendi wore the No.8 shirt at Real Sociedad last season and is expected to don the jersey as Ricky is deemed to be surplus to requirements. Although he recently revealed he has had “positive talks” with coach Carlo Ancelotti, it is very likely that the veteran will be shown the exit door.
Now, we are all familiar with the fact that mentioning Kaka without mentioning Milan beside him is equal to saying Super, but not Mario. This time it is parliamocidicalcio.it claiming Rossoneri’s CEO Adriano Galliani contacted the Madrid giants over their former jewel.
Real Madrid seem desperate to sell Kaka, who has been linked with total number of 30 various clubs, as this could be the Milan’s opportunity to snatch him on low cost or even for free, in case the Brazilian asks for a contract termination so as to get rid of the gigantic salary.
