According to the site Globoesporte the Brazilian striker, who has just ended his participation in the Copa America, is a free agent after his contract with Santos ended today.

Queretaro are not the only ones who are looking to sign the former Real Madrid and AC Milan player, with the Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande, managed by ex-Brazil boss Luiz Felipe Scolari, also looking to sign the forward.

It is reported that Santos want to try and retain their striker, but that he prefers to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldinho and experience a different league and sporting culture – especially as he enters the twilight of his career.

If Queretaro manage to sign 31-year-old Robinho in the coming days, his transfer will be one of the most expensive deals of the summer in Mexico. It is thought the club would have to pay approximately 7 million USD, 3 million less than what Tigres paid to Pachuca for Chelsea target Jurgen Damm.
