Robinho Moves To Milan

Robinho Moves To Milan

Premier League record signing Robinho has signed a 4-year deal with Italian giants AC Milan, joining Brazilian compatriates Pato and Ronaldinho at the San Siro.

The 26-year-old scored 16 goals for City before moving to Santos on loan ahead of the World Cup where the diminutive winger shone.

Unable to afford to take him on a permanent basis, Robinho returned to City before Milan swooped for him with just over an hour left before the transfer window closed.

Although the talented Brazilian failed to adapt to life in the Premier League, he provided some memorable moments and brought the Samba to Manchester.

So that settles the question, "which 'foreign' club do you hate most?" AC Milan has nudged in front of Real Madrid.

No idea how they were able to afford him, they had to get Genoa to buy Kevin-Prince Boateng for them...

He'll be back in Santos within 12 months after he realises he's not the centre of attention in Milan. Good riddance, talented, but the man's head is clearly not screwed on the correct way.

If the reported figure of £22m is accurate, we've actually made a profit on him.

Sad to see the little crap bag go, would have been great if he had the balls to stay and prove himself but no he ran away like a little girl. Was great to watch him 08/09 and 09/10 never got a good run to prove himself without the 'he doesn't track back' idiots getting on his case. A player like that needs confidence week in week out and he didn't get it with us due to mangers and some fans imo. Think he could have been great in 4-3-3 but ah well, least its one less distraction.

agreed vanilla, what a bad way to manage one of the world's best, yet most sensitive, talents. Unforgivable by Manc who was just trying to make a statement - why not do it to richards instead?!
