Serie A giants ready to take a risk on Eastlands star.
Manchester City forward Robinho has emerged as a transfer target for AC Milan should they fail to land Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Brazil international is facing an uncertain future at Eastlands having spent the second half of last season on loan in his homeland with Santos.
City boss Roberto Mancini has a wealth of attacking options at his disposal and it is believed the club are ready to let their record signing move on.

So are AC Milan taking a big risk by considering a move for the Brazilian? Or is there a chance of scoring something of a bargain by looking into brining the former Real Madrid man to the San Siro? There are reports suggesting that so keen is Roberto Mancini to rid the club of the 26 year old that he is willing to take around £14-16m to cut their losses.
Clearly there are issues behind the scenes and in the dressing room that have made the chances of Robinho ever representing Man City an impossibility, however that doesn’t mean that on pure footballing terms he would walk into the team, wouldn’t he?
The talented attacked had a great first season at Eastlands but then the sacking of Mark Hughes pretty much seemed a death knell for the player who then went out on loan to Santos in order to keep himself match fit ahead of a World Cup that he did fairly well in.
The idea he may go to AC has a lot to with whether the new boss Massimiliano Allegri can find the funds to land Barcelona forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic, which seems unlikely as Barcelona want silly money for the Swede, making a move for second choice Robinho a distinct possibility.
