Stamford Bridge side chase Brazilian striker.
ROBINHO could be in line for a shock return to the Premier League with Chelsea.
Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has been alerted over the former Manchester City star who could leave AC Milan if the Italians clinch a deal for City outcast Carlos Tevez.
Milan would exceed their quota of foreign players if they signed Tevez.
Top clubs across Europe have been advised that Robinho or fellow Brazilian Alexandre Pato, 22 – another Chelsea target – could be off-loaded to make room for the Argentinian star.

Robinho was of course reportedly very close to moving to Stamford Bridge back in the summer of 2008 but decided at the last minute to move to Man City, a move that didn’t work out too well for the former Real Madrid man. After a good opening season at the club the change of manager left the Brazilian looking for a new club and after a loan spell at Santos a move to the San Siro was secured.
The 27 year old has been consistent since his move to AC Milan but has seen his first team starts reduced this term and has managed just three goals in 13 matches and a move to the West London club may well interest Robinho.
Andre Villas-Boas is apparently set to lose Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba is yet to sign a new deal and could leave in the summer. Fernando Torres is off form and therefore there may well be a need to bring in another attacking option, perhaps Robinho fits the bill?
