Brazilian ace staying in Italy.
AC Milan forward Robinho has agreed to stay at the club this summer after seeing a return to his boyhood club Santos fall through, Sky Sports reports.
The 29-year-old had been expected to return to his former club in Brazil this summer after slipping down the pecking order at the San Siro this season and the Rossoneri had been keen to organise a deal that would see him exit the side.
Robinho made his senior debut for the Vila Belmiro outfit at the tender age of 16 before leaving for Europe to join Real Madrid back in 2005 and, after moving to Manchester City for two inconsistent seasons three years later, he would find himself back on loan with Santos for six months in 2010.
However, the Brazilian club pulled out of a deal to bring him back permanently last week after failing to agree terms with both club and player, and subsequently, the Italian side withdrew him from the market and he has now agreed a prolonged stay in Serie A.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “AC Milan announce that Robinho has extended his contract to June 30, 2016.”
Robinho arrived at the San Siro for €18 million (£15million) three years ago and he has since scored 22 league goals in 85 for the Serie A giants.
